…Sorry to disappoint those of you who were expecting a blog featuring supernatural art! This post is actually following on from my recent ‘ghost signs‘ post. ‘Ghost sign’ is the term given to the old, faded advertisements often found on the sides of buildings. There have been calls recently for these remnants of our past to be preserved.

‘Ghost art’ (my own term!) is an interesting twist on the ‘ghost’ style. These beautiful photos show street art depicting incredibly life-like portraits, painted in a faded style, often on derelict and rundown buildings. If you appreciate street art, its definitely worth checking this link out.
