The Queen Elizabeth Hall is collecting street art murals these days the way a Russian gangster collects tattoos. An additional seven large-scale artworks have been added to the area over the weekend thanks to the Southbank Centre donating space to the 'Walls Project' curated by Global Street Art.
The murals include images of a neon-soaked nightscape and an unspooling conveyor-belt of fast food turned bad. Although the new commissions are temporary – set to stay up for a month – this now means that around a third of the walls of the Queen Elizabeth Hall have been painted in some way.
