YOU may have noticed the graffiti on the windows of the Enniskillen Stoke Association building recently, but this is not the act of vandalism but instead the result of an exciting collaboration between art and design students at South West College and talented Rossnowlagh based graffiti artist Gavin McCrea.
The Stroke Association have recently moved to a new premises in Enniskillen and this project came about as a result of the move.
The students were asked to create an art piece that was colourful and would attract the attention of both young and old using all kinds of imagery.
Lecturer Clare Gilmurray was delighted with the experience provided to the students.
“This was a great experience for our students to be part of a live art project which is no permanently installed in the windows of Enniskillen’s Stroke Association.
The students were delighted to be able to put their talents to such good use and to help a local charity that a number of them care deeply about.”
Gavin McCrea, the graffiti artist who worked with the college expressed similar sentiments to Clare. “I really enjoyed working with the college and students.
“They worked hard to achieve this extremely successful mural. It looks cool and contemporary – full of colour and should appeal to all ages.”
