As part of the Chester Designed By Nature campaign launched by Destination Chester, ten BT cabinets have been transformed into colourful murals within the city centre. Usually painted green, BT Openreach gave special permission for the cabinets to be painted for the benefit of the city’s community.
Chester BID commissioned eight Cheshire artists to paint the murals with the theme of ‘Chester Designed By Nature’. Each artist has interpreted the theme in their own way, delivering an array of unique, colourful artworks to be enjoyed by passers-by. The artists range from art school graduates to accomplished artists and Chester household names like Julie Colclough who owns a gallery on Watergate Street and Nikki Pinder, who hid art around the city during the COVID-19 lockdowns.
