Ghostvillage Project: Repaint Abandoned Cities!

If your aren’t Scottish, you have maybe never heard about the great and fantastic “Ghostvillage Project”. Some weeks ago, six more or less renowned urban artists – Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Stormie Mills, Juice 126 and Derm – meet each other for three days on the west coast of Scotland to repaint an abandoned 1970s village.

Working together on huge collaborative walls and individually in hidden nooks and crannies all over the site the artists realised long held dreams and were inspired by the bleakness and remoteness of the site. Drawing on the history of the village the artists’ stated intent on completion of the project was to populate the ghostvillage with the art and characters that it deserved. (Agents of Change)

For those of you, who can’t get enough, there are a lot of brilliant photos of the “Ghostvillage Project” in Ian Cox’ photo-stream on Flickr. It’s really touching to see the wide landscape, that abandoned village and the great paintings!
