Art on the Street: Spaceboy’s Black Ark Installation in Edinburgh

It seems like more and more corporate commissioned street art projects are popping up lately. The latest sees Scottish-artist Spaceboy, part of the Rough Cut Collective, team up with renowned East London design studio Black Ionica to create a comic in the street.

As part of the Make with a Red Stripe campaign, which has seen the famous beer brand launching a series of public arts projects (such as a giant game of Space Invaders on a Manchester wall), Spaceboy (aka Mike Inglis) pasted his illustrations on six shutters of Newhaven harbour.

It’s a little heavy on the product placement but it’s worth a watch.
