'Can Change' Film Complete
A street artist hoping to change negative views on 'graffiti' has helped complete a film in a bid to raise awareness on the issue.
Callum Watson (20), from North Shields, is also warning of the dangers around doing street art in unsafe areas after a close friend of his was injured while working on a piece next to a railway line.
Through his Fixers film he wants youngsters to see the ‘benefits’ of taking part in ‘legal graffiti’ and is encouraging them to stay within the law as well as staying safe.
'I want my film to take the graffiti away from areas where it upsets local residents, and find new legal places for artists to express themselves.'
The film contains interviewed dialogue from the 20-year-old and dramatized sections based on his experiences to show his concerns about graffiti.
Callum adds: 'I have worked on this project for some time with the Fixers team and now it’s time to spread the message.'
