Headline artist Zabou will be adding a literary masterpiece to The Brewery on Henrietta Street. This is also the location of our doodle wall where you can show your own artistic talents.
You can find the previous pieces by p0g0, Gnasher and Inkie on the side of The Brewery Tower.
University of Gloucestershire Hardwicke Campus
This is where our festival fringe village and pop-up gallery will be taking place. The festival fringe village will include our popular spray paint workshops, face painting and a range of arts activities that you can try.
Sophie Long will be painting here, and previous works by My Dog Sighs and Wasp Elder can be seen on the walls of the main building.
Pad, painter of the amazing brick shark on the Honeybourne Line, will be painting a larger piece between the existing Beau Stanton and Snik pieces. Chinagirl Tile will be combining one of her fabulous ceramic pieces with a painting on one of the other walls of the pub.
This wall will feature an amazing anamorphic piece by WD Street Art. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances WD will be unable to paint this piece until October.
Lower High Street Car Park
Airborne Mark will be painting a large mural on the rear of Thornton Mews, the building that already has a My Dog Sighs hug on a different wall. The Samer piece from last year can still be seen above Woody's greengrocers.
Princess Elizabeth Way - The ARTery
We have been given permission by Cheltenham Borough Homes to paint a series of walls that we are calling The ARTery. The ARTery will form a world-class outdoor art gallery, and we are delighted that the first two artists will be Inkie and Dan Kitchener.
Headliner Samer will be painting his second Cheltenham piece on a large wall at the corner of Winchcombe and Albion Streets.
North Place car park
As one of our biggest wall-spaces for 2019 North Place car park is well worth a visit. This location provides a unique opportunity to see many different styles of painting from a host of different artists, all in one place.
We have permission to paint the two tunnels and four bridges on the Honeybourne Line, a path popular with dog-walkers, cyclists, and people walking between Pittville Park, Waitrose and the train station. The path has step free access at all entrances/exits, is flat and level, and has a couple of play areas so fulfils our desire to make this festival as accessible as possible for everyone. We hope the weekend of the festival will bring good weather but painting will be able to take place at the tunnels regardless.
Town centre pubs
New artwork will be painted at Two Pigs and The Frog and Fiddle (open from 1pm) this year. The Frog and Fiddle also has pieces from previous years.
They are in the centre of town between the Car Park and The Bayshill, near The Brewery. Why not take the opportunity to stop for a drink and a bite to eat and watch the artists at work. If it is raining this will be a great place to see the artists.
There will be artists working on the skate park in Pittville park. You can see some existing 2018 artwork at Aggs Garden Pavilion, and we will be painting two new pieces there.
The Bank House
Inkie will be painting a stunning piece on the side of the pub, where the road goes through to St Mary's Church.
Kimberley Thomas will be painting a piece highlighting environmental issues on a wall inside Chapel Arts Gallery. This wall will be visible during the festival and at other times during the year. James Green will be painting a canvas either inside or outside the gallery, dependent on weather.
Cheltenham Paint Festival have curated an urban arts exhibition at the gallery which will run until 14th September 2019.
International artist Fabio Petani will be bringing Italian flair to the side of a house on Swindon Road. With the number of other works in this area we are naming it Cheltenham's mural quarter.
Marle Hill Road
Irony will be wowing people again with a new piece which will be on the side of a house opposite Pittville Park.
St George's Street
Faunagraphic and Rocket01 are jointly painting a stand-out piece on the rear of the St George's Apartment block.
Trust.Icon paid an early, secret visit to Cheltenham Paint Festival to leave us two pieces in his distinctive style.
