York Café
A York Café has been transformed...
.....into a Work of Art.


An international movement calling itself “Art of Protest” has been operating in many European Cities and Towns to transform the appearance of public spaces for the better.

This includes painting shop fronts, painting on walls, creating furniture and sculptures, all for public enjoyment.

Their latest work in York can be seen at the “No 4 Church Lane Café”. On behalf the Café, Tess and Paul, said they were both delighted with the work and the professionalism displayed by the team of artists involved, led by Brenna and Jeff. When you next go into the City Centre, go and have a look at the café’s new shopfront. The café is located at the back of St Michael’s Church Spurriergate at the Ousegate end of Coney Street. It might inspire you to get involved in this project yourself.

The group in York recently painted a series of murals called “York’s Lockdown Heroes” as portraits of those who were playing an active role in fighting the corona virus, and in making York a safer place to live and work.
