Street Art in Blackpool

The Sand Sea and Spray event took place each year between 2012 and 2016, organised by a collective of independent artists, led by Robin Ross. Over the years it’s seen bright and fabulous images appearing all over Blackpool.

Urban artists have come to Blackpool from all over Europe to take part in the event and transform the blank walls of Blackpool into a masterpiece of colour and skill.

The Sun Lounge at North Pier, Deansgate, Adelaide Street car park, the car park on Central Drive/Palatine Road, the Winter Gardens and Church Street are all locations where you’ll spot their work.
