The Duke of Lancaster, located off the coast of North Wales, has been transformed into a floating gallery by DuDug.

A ship on the coast of North Wales has been turned into a kind of floating gallery, with graffiti covering the outside. The Duke of Lancaster, which has been abandoned since 1979, was taken over by an international street art collective called DuDug.

With PSFK's recent coverage of an abandoned church turned into a large-scale mural, we see more of the beautification of derelict spots as the future of urban development, rather than tearing them down or destroying them.

The group of talented artists, including KIWIE, Bungle, Lora Zombie, Fatheat, and Fin DAC, transformed the unique blank canvas with eight large-scale works and plans for more. It is hoped that the public will visit the site and learn about the history of the ship. Click through to see pictures of the artworks:
