‘Marie, I Love U, Diego’ – The mysterious displays of affection around Leicester

By Abigail Beresford

Mysterious displays of affection have been found on various walls around Leicester by an unknown ‘Diego’ to his love ‘Marie’.

Various written murals have caught the eyes of people throughout the city, plastered on walls.

The unique profession of love has become the centre of a creative project that has become an exhibition that has been featured at the LCB Depot’s window gallery.

Photographer, Josie Parr, turned the messages into a photography collection titled ‘Love Notes (2020)’ to document the display of affection.

The unanswered question remains – does the love story between Marie and Diego continue?
