Tallest mural in Europe soars over Leeds city centre!


A mural taller than New York's Statue of Liberty has been finished on the side of a building in Leeds.

Athena Rising reaches more than 150ft (46m) from the ground on the revamped Platform building (formerly City House), near Leeds railway station.

The mural is 36 ft (11m) wide and described as the UK's tallest piece of street art by organisers.

An owl, alongside the moon and a crown was designed and drawn by a pair of artists known as Nomad Clan.

It has taken the artists The duo - Cbloxx and AYLO (Joy Gilleard and Hayley Garner) about two weeks and hundreds of cans of spray paint to complete the work.
