Town centre space offers public art for Coastal Currents

Hastings Borough Council teamed up with Coastal Currents organiser Sweet and Dandy, who organised some amazing artists to add artwork to the hoardings in Harold Place.

Deputy leader Kim Forward, lead councillor for regeneration and culture said,

“This interesting, varied artwork has really transformed and animated the space and it has attracted much interest and many positive comments.

People will be able to continue to appreciate the artists’ work long after the festival finishes.”

The pedestrian side is the work of artist Etienne Le Comte, who takes inspiration from drawing, science fiction and 2000 AD comics. The road side features work by legendary street artist REQ, one of the UK’s most respected graffiti artists. Local Hastings artist Drew Copus completes the trio of artists who have put their talents to the hoardings.

The art forms part of the wider Coastal Currents festival.
