Huge Abandoned Ship “Duke Of Lancaster” Transformed into a Mind Blowing Graffiti Gallery

By  |  9 Comments

DuDug is an international street art collective that has taken over an abandoned ship on the beaches of Llanerch-y-Mor in North Wales, repurposing its deserted carcass as a large canvas for their graffiti art project referred to as The Black Duke. The once highly revered cruise liner known as the Duke of Lancaster was left to rust on a dry dock since 1979 and only finally approached and transformed by these group of artists last year.

A few of the artists have even taken the time to record their process. Check out a short video featuring artist KIWIE, below, as he adds his creations to the hull of the enormous ship.
