The open air art event - part of this year’s Hostry Festival - saw 28 artists take to the city’s streets over two days and create work which was then displayed at Norwich Cathedral’s Hostry from October 24 until November 2.

About 5,000 people were thought to have visited the art show and the public were invited to vote for their favourite artist. Mr Wales won the People’s Choice accolade - and a hamper of art products donated by Norwich Art Supplies - for his work featuring Norwich Market, Norwich Cathedral’s cloister, Elm Hill, and a view from Norwich Castle.

About his artistic style, Mr Wales, from Highgate, London, previously said: “I like quirky details and the juxtaposition of nature with the man made.”

During the two-day painting competition on October 22 and 23 artists painted at seven city landmarks - Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, St John’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, Pull’s Ferry, Elm Hill, Norwich Market, and The Forum.

  • I am deeply envious of people who have this talent to draw or paint good pictures. Perhaps we could take the whole GoGo Gorillas initiative a stage further next year. Instead of putting gorillas around the city, for one year put up large-scale weatherproof prints of local city scenes by local people.
