A £2.6 million arts project across South Holland is picking up speed with help from a fleet of lorries.

Spalding-based transport firm FreshLinc has teamed up with Transported Arts to carry canvas portraits and landscapes on the sides of its vehicles across the UK and Europe.

Artists will be working with managers of the haulage firm to take the arts project beyond its base in South Holland and Boston.

FreshLinc commercial manager Ashley Holland said: “We are so excited and proud to be supporting Transported and the chance to celebrate the local area through the artwork to be exhibited across the UK and Europe.

“These vehicles will pass hundreds, if not thousands of people every day, every time with their own unique backdrop.

“This a unique opportunity for both artists and FreshLinc to encourage future collaboration between our industries.”

Transported is also on the hunt for a photographer or artist for its Pop Up project which creates art experiences in unusual places to reach new audiences.

The photographer or artist chosen will produce images based on allotments, inspired by the colours of patterns of flowers, food and growers.

Each work will be exhibited in a special Pop Up gallery or installation, with an eBook also created of the different images.

Transported is also putting on a one-day training session for people looking to develop and improve their photography skills.
