Today while I was wandering through town with Ai, one of the AIEs from my schools, we passed a building on Namiki Dori near Parco that is due for refurbishment soon. While they are waiting to gut it and put something shiny and new in its stead artists from around Hiroshima have come down and installed pieces, grafittied on walls, vandalised toilets and generally just turned this otherwise lacklustre building into a free gallery of sorts. Almost every available space has been upgraded from blank wall to art and the central theme throughout is peace and memories. Here are a few of my favourites.
