MASSIVE illuminations have been spotted appearing on buildings in Newport.

The projections are the work of street artist Rise Propaganda.

One projection, beamed on Newport Civic Centre, showed a clenched fist, with the word RISE underneath.

Another was projected on to Friars Walk. It showed a replica of the Chartist Mural destroyed on the same site 2013.

The artist behind Rise Propaganda - known on social media as John Frost - has hinted that the illuminations are a countdown.

But to what remains a mystery.

The Westgate Hotel has also been illuminated with the message: “Time to rebel. Time to rise.”

While another projection featured a graphic of Tiny Rebel’s iconic teddy, with the RISE logo covering its eyes.
