A young street artist, who has recently had success with his work, is looking for help and support with getting a graffiti wall in Boston.

Daniel Bowers, 23, who lives in Kirton, started off spraypainting designs on his friends, shoes, canvases and even bedroom walls, and has built up a reputation for his work – appearing at various conventions including the Birmingham Comic Con.

He recently helped Mini garage launch the new Mini by spray-painting a wooden box in the middle of Pescod Square to help drum up publicity.

During the project he found support from young and old, with some offering him money – which he declined.

Daniel, who also works part-time at Carphone Warehouse, said: “What I’m trying to do is refresh the graffiti topic in Boston and fight to get a dedicated wall to work on and show off our skills.

“It would be a very good activity for youths to learn and channel there behaviour into art.”

He said, although he had never graffitied a public wall, he appreciated the skill of some of those who did.

He said the closest dedicated wall was in Peterborough, and that he believed it would give people a place to go to practice their art.

He added it would be low maintenance, as when one person finished their work the next could come along, spray the wall white and start their own piece.
