GRAFFITI artists made sure they left their artistic mark to help welcome people into Portsmouth.

Around 21 artists were busy spray-painting colourful works of art onto hoardings of the former Zurich insurance office in Stanhope Road.

The project – which can be seen from Portsmouth and Southsea Railway Station – was a joint venture between Portsmouth City Council, creative agency We Are Pseudonym, and Fark Industries, who got the artists together.

One artist, who goes by the name of My Dog Sighs, 39, of Southsea, said: ‘It’s a great way to liven the centre up.

‘It’s a nice way to welcome people into the city and it shows graffiti as art.’
