As part of Leith Late, The Too Much Fun Club created this mural. We love it!
Our feature on Russell Ian Dempster’s mural in Leith.
Whilst the mural was taking shape, we luckily came across the artist, Guido van Helten finishing it off. He said he was incredibly pleased with this piece of work and was delighted to have two pieces of art in Edinburgh now.
Last week we also spotted this piece of ‘guerrilla crochet’ on Leith Walk.
There’s lots of other pieces of street art around Leith which we’ve included below. Some are months old, some over a year and Carpet Lane is as old as we can remember!
Also part of the Leith Late is this mural project on the wall of Halmyre Street.
The following picture was added on September 18th and after posting on twitter, we were informed that they were knitted and placed there in memory of someone who passed away and always wore odd socks. Today would have been his birthday.
Gone but not forgotten
Unfortunately the following pieces of art are no longer there. Our previous piece on Cool Wool in Leith Links.
