“Invisible” has been created by acclaimed UK arts collective Greyworld in 19 sites across Burnley, East Lancashire.

The entire town of Burnley has become a canvas for magical paintings that appear and disappear throughout the day and night. Some as big as a house, others as small as a door, these paintings reveal a hidden side of Burnley, offering viewers the opportunity to explore the town in a whole new light.

It was the first of up to seven works of art across the UK to be revealed as part of the Big Art Project, an ambitious UK wide public art commissioning initiative. The documentary following the development of “Invisible” was shown every Sunday in May 2009, on Channel Four. For more information, click here.
