about us

  • greyworld are a group of artists that create public art – usually in urban spaces.

    Our work is about play, and allowing creative expression in parts of the city that usually exclude it. Over the years, we have created permanent installations in many countries around the world.

    Have a look at our Facebook page for regular updates. There are also lots of videos of our artwork on Vimeo, a few on Youtube and lots of photos on Flickr. Also, our Twitter stream is a good place to see where we are at. There are also some general media clips about greyworld on the right hand side of this page.

Clive Gilman, Fact Centre, Liverpool

    A major artwork – a strange and striking piece. Mark Lawson, Radio 4

    For centuries public art has meant monuments of bronzed warriors or controversial sculptures that were more often reviled than admired. Greyworld is trying to change all that, using its imaginative installations to transform the world’s dreary urban areas. Tara Pepper, Newsweek.
