More Chester Mini-Murals are popping up around the city

Eight new BT cabinets have been transformed into colourful murals within the city centre.

Chester BID had previously commissioned eight Cheshire artists to paint the murals with the theme of ‘Chester Designed By Nature’ and due to the popularity of the scheme, have extended this to sixteen in total. Each artist has interpreted the theme in their own way, delivering an array of unique, colourful artworks to be enjoyed by passers-by. 

Local artists have led the contributions with many of them echoing the love of their city and region through their art. 

Luka Morrell, Business Engagement Manager, Chester BID said: ‘We’re delighted with the popularity of the mini-murals – it is a small local initiative that has achieved an unexpected buzz within the city centre.’ 

 ‘It’s so important that we get the experience of Chester right for both resident and visitors. This means working hard to get the basics right - cleaner streets, safe lighting and then the icing on the cake is initiatives like Chester in bloom and these mini-murals which go a long way in elevating the city experience further.’ 

The Mini-Mural locations can be found here.
