Edinburgh’s public art scene has really been gathering pace recently, another recent addition that I’ve been meaning to get down and snap is Spaceboy’s 6 shutter piece at Leith’s Newhaven harbour.
Along the rear of Welch’s Fishmonger he put together this large piece with the help of ECA students, and beer company ‘Red Stripe’.
