ATTRACTION bosses are set to splash a little more colour over their seafront facade.

Urban street artist Rocket01 has been working with designers at the 42-acre Blackpool Pleasure Beach to come up with a creative piece of artwork for a section of Ocean Boulevard.

The Sheffield artist started work yesterday and will complete the mural in time for the Illuminations Switch-On party on Friday.

The artwork is similar to that which has been springing up around central Blackpool, around the Winter Gardens and Adelaide Street.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach creative director Antony Johns was introduced to Rocket01, real name Chris Butcher, by Robin Ross, the brains behind the central Blackpool murals.

Rocket01 began working with graffiti in the 1980s on abandoned buildings around Sheffield and this is one of the biggest public pieces of artwork he has been commissioned to carry out.
