Graffiti Castle in Scotland

Posted: Mar 10, 2011 by Sean Young

Originally built in the 13th century and remodeled in the 16th century, Kelburn Castle is one of the oldest castles in Scotland, and has been continuously inhabited by a family for a long time. One fine day, the Earl of Glasgow was told that the concrete facings were in bad condition and would have to be redone to save the stone underneath. To raise money for the refacing, the Earl’s children had the idea of bringing in public to see the castle, and have huge images painted on the castle.

They contacted four Brazilian Graffiti artists for the project, who stayed in the castle for a month, collaborating on the ideas and creating these amazing paintings. It indeed is rare to see castle-scale graffiti, and it looks good. Since the concrete had to be removed later, the paintings didn’t really pose a problem for the castle.
