Breaking KENT Maidstone

A group of young people from Maidstone have helped create an amazing mural at Maidstone Bus Station by working with Graham Upton, an award-winning street artist, as part of the refurbishments to the area

The mural include links to the former Maidstone Zoo along with Morph and TV personality and artist Tony Hart who was born in Maidstone and a student at the former Art College in the town.
Local teenagers worked on the project for four days alongside artist Graham using around 140 cans of spray paint of varying colours to create the mural.
The stunning mural will complement the new look Maidstone Bus Station which is being refurbished and includes new CCTV, enhanced lighting and improved public announcement equipment to help people as they arrive in town or board the buses in the area of the station situated under the Mall shopping centre.
Maidstone Borough Council is working with Kent County Council, Arriva Kent and Medway, @NuVenture and the owners of the The Mall, Maidstone to refurbish and improve the area.
