Opening the closed doors

Some smart people in Dundee came up with a creative idea over lunch and launched the Open/Close Project.  The aim was to bring great street art to the city in a way that would brighten up the previously unexplored nooks and crannies of the city.  As a result there are 18 street art pieces on 18 different doors by 18 local artists, and most of them are on doors.

I hadn’t gone armed with a map so my trail was a bit hit and miss as I hunted the alleys of Dundee city centre.  I didn’t find them all, but what I found was excellent, a tremendous way to brighten hidden doorways and reduce vandalism. I hope you enjoy the selection below.
