Leeds Train Station – Bishopgate Steps
Street Art project commissioned by Leeds City Council. The steps from Bishopgate Street to Leeds Train Station were in need of a facelift. The brief was to revitalise the space making it more welcoming.
The steps would remain open during their regular hours of 5am – 9.30pm, therefore work had to be carried out during the night.
After cleaning, stabilising and undercoating the walls, the design was sprayed on with luscious Loop paint. The ceiling got a fresh white revamp, and the handrails turned light grey.
I went bright and abstract with the design, and learned that 3am is not the time I make my best decisions.
Completed Aug 2018.
Big thanks to the team at Leeds City Council (Rebecca, Mark and Highways Lee), and all the Leeds Train Station night staff that made this job a joy.
