Ghostvillage Project, The

Synopsis
The Ghostvillage Project was created over three days on the west coast of Scotland. Six artists - Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Stormie Mills, Juice 126, Derm - were given free reign to paint in an abandoned, 1970s village. Working together on huge collaborative walls and individually in hidden nooks and crannies all over the site the artists realised long-held dreams and were inspired by the bleakness and remoteness of the site. Drawing on the history of the village the artists’ stated intent on completion of the project was to populate the ghost village with the art and characters that it deserved.
