Fiona Grady is a site-responsive artist. Her colourful geometric artworks are architectural interventions that transform the physical spaces they are situated within. Her new piece ‘Meeting Points’, commissioned by Artwalk Wakefield, is composed from translucent coloured vinyls and will be installed onto the skylight windows of Wakefield’s Ridings Shopping Centre.
A Walk in Wakefield is a new permanent mural in The Ridings Shopping Centre, created by artist Beth Morgan, inspired by the natural landscapes around Wakefield. Commissioned by Artwalk Wakefield.
Mohammad Barrangi is a UK-based illustrator, printmaker and athlete originally from Iran. Barrangi’s work combines Persian calligraphy, storytelling, text, and touches of humour. The inspiration for this mural, On The Path To Happiness, comes from Barrangi’s lived experience of immigration and the welcome he received in Wakefield from organisations such as Wakefield Cathedral and The Art House.
