Dudug Transforms the TSS Duke of Lancaster

International street artist collective Dudug transformed the once regal ocean liner, the TSS Duke of Lancaster, into an open air gallery. The ship was left to rot on a dry dock in Dee estuary, Flintshire in 1979. Following a number of planning disputes between the owners and Flintshire's council, the owners granted Dudug permission to launch their project dubbed "The Black Duke" with contributions from artists including KIWIE, Cream Soda Crew, Laura Zombie, Bungle and Goin, Fat Heat and Mr Zero among others. Take a look at some photos of the project courtesy of Dudug after the jump.
