Roaming. Not Quite Hollywood.

The comparisons between Hollywood and Newcastle are near non-existant, aside from a need for a car to get around. Public transport in Newcastle is woeful, which is a shame considering the extensive tram network that was once in place. But I digress, Trevor Dickinson's transformation of the city continues. Since his exhibition at the Lock-up in 2011, Trevor has painted murals all over the city bringing a vibrancy to some worn out areas. Is he on the council's payroll one wonders. The image above can be found outside the Newcastle Museum near Civic station. But if you want a real treat, track down his post box prints. They're terrific fun.
