Queen Street is a key route into the city and this month has seen that route brightened up with new art work installed with the help of InExeter and the St David's Neighbourhood Partnership.

Illustrator, Aylwyn Bowen is excited to be part of the project saying, “I have a passion for creating images of Exeter’s well known buildings and love to work on projects related to the city. Each panel took approximately 2-3 days to create and I feel that they bring such light and colour to the area. I was so pleased to take part in this project as I am a keen supporter of community initiatives. Projects for the good of the community are great and it is also very rewarding to see my work on show in Queen Street for so many to comment on as they walk by.”

Ann Hunter, InExeter manager noted, “Initiatives like this make Exeter a brighter place to enjoy and we’re delighted to support the work of St David’s Neighbourhood Partnership. It’s great to see what the added investment that InExeter provides for the city, can do. Keep an eye out for more artwork coming soon!”

Throughout this year InExeter has been bringing more colour to Exeter’s centre with Chinese lanterns, an impressive umbrella installation, flourishing hanging baskets, bunting and brightly coloured flags making the city a more inviting place for residents and visitors.
