A Limerick about Carlisle has been painted onto the side of Struts.

Angry Dan, an artist from London, spent Friday painting the limerick about a cantankerous man from Carlisle on the side of Struts after being contacted by Ben Heslop, owner of Landmark Street Art.

Mr Heslop contacted Angry Dan after seeing his original artwork about Carlisle on Instagram - from here it was just a matter of getting the artist up to Carlisle to recreate it for the city.

"The fact that it mentioned Carlisle meant that it should definitely be painted in Carlisle, so that's why we started the conversation".

The limerick says: "A cantankerous man from Carlisle; Sold liquorice lace by the mile; I said "that's eccentric, why don't you go metric"; he said "kilometres ain't worth my while".

Ben has a masterplan for Carlisle that will see art pop-up all over the city streets which will give people the chance to "eventually walk through a gallery of styles".

Mr Heslop remarked: "I go to lots of other places and I see the positive influence that art can have on the town, and I look at my city and think that its a shame that isn't happening here.

"Now it is."

Angry Dan's piece is a recreation of one that had originally been painted in Shoreditch, the inspiration came from a Whatsapp conversation with a friend who was performing in Carlisle.

"This is actually my first time painting outside of London, it's strange in that the limerick has taken me up here," he commented.

"That silly little bit of writing is the reason why I was on a train, why I'm staying here."

His artwork is bright and full of vivid colours, it brings with it a pop of life to a street that is otherwise quite dreary.

The artist has been writing and illustrating limericks for four years but only began painting them in the street one year ago.

Bringing Angry Dan's artwork to the city is part of "the continued drive to bring art, through street-art, to the city and to allow people to interact with things in their surroundings outside of a gallery setting to start a conversation," Mr Heslop said.

That conversation focuses on the questions of "what is public art, what can it encapsulate, what does it encompass, and why is it there, do you like it or do you not like it?"

Angry Dan's art can be seen in full on his Instagram account of the same name.
