A prominent street artist has brought a taste of the Copacabana to Whitley Bay with an eye-catching mural.
Ananda Nahu has jetted in from her hometown of Rio-de-Janeiro to paint the colourful display on a stretch of blank hoardings outside the Spanish City Dome.
The mural, which is inspired by the coastal setting, features colourful images of wildlife and plants, and has been created using different types of spray paint.
It is aimed at injecting a splash of colour and life into the area where major building work is underway on the new Premier Inn hotel as well as the restoration of the iconic Spanish City set to begin soon.
The work is part of North Tyneside Council’s £36m Seafront Master Plan to revitalise the coast between Cullercoats Bay and St Mary’s Island.
