The Tunnel

Walking through Waterloo graffiti tunnel last week we were impressed to see a hive of creativity.  A diverse range of graffiti artists had gathered to make their mark and showcase their art to passers by.

The ever changing patchwork of street art has been constantly evolving since May 2008 when the 300m long tunnel was initially created during the ‘Cans Festival’.  Organised by the infamous Bristol based street artist Banksy, the Cans Festival  experienced a second edition over the August bank holiday of the same year and since then te tunnel has been repeatedly transformed. Artists bring scaffolding platforms, ladders, stools and copious amounts of spray paint and set to work while members of the public pass by.

Amongst the tapestry of paintings along the brick and tiled walls is nestled the entrance to ‘The Vaults’ a maze of underground tunnels used as an art platform, theatre and gallery. The six week Vault arts festival begins on January 28th.
