Pwsh Statement

We were made aware this morning (14th October) that due to a devastating error involving our cleansing contractor, the beautiful artworks on the pillars in the area around the former Debenhams has been removed.

We offer our sincere and heartfelt apology to the talented artists, Beth Blandford, Amber Forde and Temeka Davies who took the opportunity to brighten up Cardiff and contribute to its vibrant and exciting culture through their artworks and we’re simply gutted for them. It was an honest mistake but unfortunately, not a mistake that can be rectified.

Investment in these emerging artists was provided via the FOR Cardiff businesses and as such we’re as saddened as the artists and public that are they’re no longer there for everyone to enjoy.

We’re working with the creative director of the project as to how we can best rectify this situation as quickly as possible.

We remain committed to continuing bringing new art to the city centre and are looking at other locations in the city centre such as Baker’s Row to provide the opportunity for artists to continue to brighten up Cardiff.
