Stephen  and Oscar

Stephen pictured above has recently published his second children’s book.

Kinver's Heavenly Paws is aimed at 6 to 12 year olds, but it is for adults too. A church mouse prays for a miracle and in response four heavenly dogs return from heaven to save the day. A story illustrated in colour, including a selection of photos of Kinver. It shows that friendship comes in many forms and it is never too late to show kindness to others”

This is Edmund Preston the creator and presenter of Radio Kinver and now RKWP for almost 11 years. He asks anyone who wishes, to feel free to write him for requests or to share news and opinions.

If things are bad and you feel down and blue ask Edmund to play a track just for you or to choose one, it won’t make things instantly better but it will perhaps remind you that at least we care and will share music to help - Anytime!

Jarek M Melbourne, Australia has a fascinating collection of photos of the Street Art of Melbourne

Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. The term gained popularity during the graffiti art boom of the early 1980s and continues to be applied to subsequent incarnations. Stencil graffiti, wheatpasted poster art or sticker art, and street installation or sculpture are common forms of modern street art. Video projection, yarn bombing and Lock On sculpture became popularised at the turn of the 21st century.

The terms "urban art", "guerrilla art", "post-graffiti" and "neo-graffiti" are also sometimes used when referring to artwork created in these contexts.[1] Traditional spray-painted graffiti artwork itself is often included in this category, excluding territorial graffiti or pure vandalism.

Street art is often motivated by a preference on the part of the artist to communicate directly with the public at large, free from perceived confines of the formal art world.[2] Street artists sometimes present socially relevant content infused with aesthetic value, to attract attention to a cause or as a form of "art provocation".

Street artists often travel between countries to spread their designs. Some artists have gained cult-followings, media and art world attention, and have gone on to work commercially in the styles which made their work known on the streets.
