Gibraltar : Street Art Murals.

Gibraltar Cultural Services, on behalf of the Ministry for Education, Heritage, Environment, Energy and Climate Change and the Ministry of Culture, the Media, Youth & Sport has announced the creation of street art murals at Castle Steps.

The Castle Street murals are the brainchild of Ronnie Alecio together with street artist Jupp and they aim to celebrate the work of one of Gibraltars most renowned artists, Gustavo Bacarisas. The murals take inspiration from the paintings created by Bacarisas who was a resident of Castle Street. The proposal is supported by the Street Art Committee which includes representatives from the Heritage Trust and several Government Departments including Town Planning.

After this project, HM Government of Gibraltar will continue to work with Ronnie Alecio and his team to extend this concept further in other areas of Gibraltar next year. This will support the street art initiative, started by the Government in line with its urban regeneration and cultural development programmes.
