The largest piece of graffiti art in Bicester was completed last Friday by a group of young artists from the OYAP Trust.

A wall of the Early Intervention Hub at The Courtyard in Launton Road now holds the team’s giant mural inspired by the theme ‘My Perfect Summer’.

The spray-painted picture contains images spanning the ocean floor and beyond, from a giant octopus to a surfer’s camper van and rockets in space.

Team leader Elaine North said: “The imagination of the young people and their inventive ideas for the mural has really brightened up the Hub at the Courtyard.

“Young people from the hub’s junior youth club sessions have been involved along with the other young people from Bicester and the surrounding area.

“Their enthusiasm and hard work has been lovely to see.”

The graffiti wall project was organised by OYAP Trust, a youth arts charity that has been working since 1998 to inspire participation and creativity in the county for those aged between 11 and 25, and was funded by the Bicester Courtyard Youth Arts Partnership.
