A SERIES of augmented reality art posters, created by artist and stroke survivor, Mark Chappell, has gone on display at Skipton Building Society's headquarters.

The artwork at the offices in The Bailey, can be viewed via smartphone or tablet using the Artivive app, which activates different augmented reality elements of the posters. The art is used to raise awareness around living with Aphasia.

Aphasia is a communication disability which usually occurs after a stroke or head injury. The condition can affect a person’s ability to speak, read, write, use numbers or process words.

Mr Chappell suffered a stroke about 11 years ago and has since lived with Aphasia. He is now a peer leader at the Skipton drop-in group supported by Say Aphasia, a charity which provides vital support to those affected by the condition.

The display, designed specifically for Skipton Building Society, is the fourth Aphasia art exhibition by the artist and hopes to raise awareness around what it is like to live with a communication disability.
