Bradford subway mural

Bradford subway mural by Sven Shaw

I was commissioned by Bradford council to come up with a concept for an 12.5 x 2m section of the underground subways. My design was a fantastical landscape featuring brightly coloured Bradford landmarks. I painted directly onto the wall in hard wearing emulsion. Some of the landmarks I painted were:

  • Yorkshire Penny Bank
  • Bradford City Hall
  • Wool Exchange
  • George’s Hall
  • Lister’s Mill
  • Alhambra Theatre
  • Bradford Live
  • Church House
  • Paper Hall
  • Bradford Cathedral
  • Central Mosque

The mural is featued alongside work by other local artists in the subways under Hall Ings Road in Bradford City centre.
