Hull has been blessed with a plethora of talented artists and lately it feels like everywhere you look around the city, there is fantastic artwork to be seen. Local artists have been using Hull as their canvas to express their message and feelings in unique and beautiful ways. Here are some of the amazing outdoor artwork you can find around Hull right now.

Bankside Gallery is a collection of outdoor exhibiton spaces, which makes it the centre for all of Hull’s creative street artists. You can search for their art using their map and have a look at their Instagram page, which they update with the newest artwork.

Dead Bod

Possibly the most iconic piece of Hull street art is the ‘Dead Bod’. Originally painted on a shed in Alexandra Docks in the 1960s, it has survived demolishment and been preserved in 64 cafe and bar. It is a really significant and interesting part of Hull’s art history!

Hull’s Statues

Hull has a huge range of statues throughout the city which commemorate our fascinating history. This includes the royalty- King Billy Statue in Market Place and the Queen Victoria in Queen Victoria Square. There’s also Larkin’s toad in the Streetlife Museum garden, Amy Earhart’s moths and the monument dedicated to Wilberforce in Queen’s Gardens.


Kings is a venue in Castle Street. In July 2020, the artist Dan Kitchener painted this stunning Japanese-style mural on the wall. It is a really beautiful piece of art that welcomes everyone who visits Old Town. You can find more of Kitchener’s murals from all over the world on his website.

Spring Bank

From 2018-2020, Artlink has been working on loads of projects to help communities participate in visual arts in Spring Bank. This has led to Hull-based artist, Skeg, to develop a stunning mural, as well as Katy Cobb’s flowers and birds on Collingwood Street. Plus, in December 2020, a series of lights were added to keep Spring Bank bright, even at night!

Clumber Street

In July 2021, retired art teacher Ed Ullyart created this mural outside of Clumber Street’s red brick wall in order to celebrate Hull’s musical history. This includes the faces of the Red Guitars, the Watersons, Mick Ronson, Roland Gift and Tracey Thorn!

The Shorelines Project

The Shorelines Project began in October 2020 and has brought lots of vibrant and beautiful murals to Hull in order to help create action against climate change and flooding. Calvin Innes, the project’s Artistic Director, painted the ‘All is Connected’ mural in Paragon Station. The next of the murals is ‘The Boy’ by Andy Pea in Clumber Street. Both of the artist worked together on the first mural of the collection- ‘The Girl’, on the wall of Hull College.

They have lots of infomation about their project and how you can get involved on their website.
