Street artists in Gloucester were able to showcase their talents with a market at the quays this weekend.

The market, organised by three businesses in an effort to increase footfall to their area of the docks, featured street art depictions of Marilyn Monroe, deep sea fish and cartoons.

Members of the public also had the chance to make their own spray paint creations.

Gloucester street artist Flava also came to the event, but speculation that Banksy would appear following his latest work in Cheltenham was unfounded.

Artist Trix, whose work was on display during the weekend, said: “The market has been a success as we have had the chance to talk to local people about our creations. There is a good scene in Gloucester for street art with myself, Badger, Flava and Beastie, and it’s important to encourage art.”

Passer-by Pete Chance, from Barnwood, said: “The exhibition is brilliant, and there’s a large spectrum of people in Gloucester showing an interest in art.”

The market was organised in part by stall holders from Toast cafe, Teckels and Dr Fosters.

Geraldine Yarworth, from Teckels, said: “The event was conceived by us because we wanted to create a greater footfall for our stalls, whilst promoting the work of the artists. It’s good for us to support each other.”
