A new piece of art has popped up recently on Leith Walk. It’s part of the Leith Late projects. You can read more about this particular piece of art on Greener Leith.

Finished artwork

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.

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.
