The venerable Royal Albert Hall has commissioned street artists to transform the blank walls of its loading bay with graffiti art for a unique one-day exhibition.

The 10ft high murals will sprawl across a 1,125sq/m space, with a third area dedicated to graffiti’s urban roots.

Street artists such as Ben Slow, Snik, FarkFK, Blam, Finbarr DAC and Grafter have been commissioned.

Stencil artist Grafter said: “If I can capture in a snapshot something that lets the passer-by forget about paying the gas bill for a moment and remember that sheer exhilarating thrill we all felt at one time in our life of jumping in a puddle, simply because it’s there, then I consider my work here done.”
