STREET cabinets in Bournemouth have been turned into vibrant artworks following a commission by students.

The Virgin Media cabinets in the Square and opposite The Old Fire Station in Holdenhurst Road have been painted by artist Kev Munday.

Third Wall Productions, a creative events group of third-year Arts University Bournemouth students, commissioned the two pieces.

The commission forms part of the R.A.W Project (Real Art Wins) the group is bringing to the town.

Davina Gilbert, co-founder of Third Wall Productions, said: “This project has arisen from a real need and desire for more opportunities for creative people and students in Bournemouth.

“With our R.A.W project we aim to serve the local community and give something back.”

Kev Munday has previously created art works for brands including Walt Disney and Monster Energy.

His works aim to create positive emotions with the use of vibrant colours and characters inspired by people-watching and the everyday.

“The R.A.W. Project was a great thing to be a part of,” he said.

“Both of my pieces were painted in a vibrant palette and aim to portray a positive vision that viewers of all ages can appreciate. I worked with a variety of mediums including aerosol paint, paint pens and acrylics.”

Work is currently being undertaken at 60 Million Postcards to replace the existing mural. This will be unveiled to the public on April 22, alongside an event to celebrate creativity in the local area.
