British artist Phlegm, recently traveled to a small town called Ventnor, which is on the southern tip of the Isle of Wight in the UK
It often feels to us that street art, and many creative projects which look at re-imagining our urban environment are exclusively focussed on major cities and metropolitan hubs, and rural places are assumed to be made up of quaint villages and countryside when in reality there are many small towns and villages with derelict centres, run down industrial sites and the same need for creative interventions.
Similarly too, there are local people looking for new ways to redefine their hometowns.
Over the past few years this is exactly what Ventnor Exchange has been exploring in Ventnor, a tiny town of just 6,000 people.
As usual with Phlegm, he brought to life another beautiful signature piece of work which will surely be enjoyed by the local residents for years to come.
