Future of Black Birmingham Mural

Birmingham mural celebrates 'Future Black Icons' from the city The images of 22 black musicians and artists have been painted on to the side of a music venue in Birmingham. The giant mural turns a spotlight on the talented young people creating music, art and fashion across the city, and has been unveiled as part of the city's Bass Festival. Festival curator Aliyah Hasinah said: "We wanted to look forward and maintain a sharp focus on the creative, but not just famous artists - people who we feel are really pushing the boundaries. "We have some obvious choices in there, but also some new faces and shortlisting the list was hugely complex." Commissioned through Punch Records.
