Artists on a mission to transform the Bradford subways

Artists have been busy working to transform the walls of the Jacobs Well and National Media Museum subways.

Volunteers from community environmental project Bradford RePaint, decided to touch up the old murals on the walls and have been busy painting famous landmarks.

Bradford’s City Park, the National Media Museum, Salts Mill, Bradford City Stadium, and the Five Rise Locks in Bingley, are now being transformed into artistic masterpieces.

One of the subway walls will also be devoted to Bradford’s 100 years of film whilst the floor will be painted red to look like a red carpet.

Commenting on the support the project has received, Bradford RePaint manager Karen Hutchinson, said: “The support and help that has come from artists in the local area is amazing as without them and the volunteers the subway walls would still be old and uninviting.”

Expected to take four to six weeks to complete, a total of twelve walls will be hand-painted and left for all to see.

With work still going on, people are already stopping in their tracks to get a closer look.
