Urban artists have completed a project to brighten up Gloucester City streets with the painting of utility boxes.

The concept, sponsored by Gloucester Business Improvement District (BID) and the City Council via the Welcome Back fund, is to enhance the street scene by converting often unkempt and distressed street furniture into bright points of interest. City Centre visitors can walk around the Gate Streets and immediate adjoining lanes, and spot the artwork.

In total, 75 boxes, including electric and specified BT / Openreach boxes as agreed with BT, have been decorated with colourful designs by five street artists. The art depicts a variety of Gloucester-based themes as well as a ‘nature trail’.

Bristol urban artist Jon D’oh and Gloucester’s own Flava painted the nature trail boxes, which include flowers, plants, insects, fish and other animals. There are over 40 of these themed boxes to find. All are quite small and are positioned alongside buildings.
