The Patrons Project Mural

'True North' by Nomad Clan

This is a piece of street art dedicated to the mill workers and industry that built the city of leeds and many towns of the North. The chap in the picture (on the left) is one of the artists Grandad 'Jimmy boy' who worked in the mills from being a child and then later as a spinner, he went on to own his own hardware stores and never had a days rest. Sadly we lost Jimmy this year at the ripe old age of 94 however not before he saw his own face on regional news, in the paper, on a can of beer and of course Emmerdale! This mural was brought to you by Nomad Clan sponsored by Northern Monk Brewery in association with Leeds 2023 & CEG.

John Marshall by Tankpetrol

Tankpetrol is a Polish street artist, now based in Manchester. He uses both, free hand and stencils as his medium, which he entangles with carefully placed background details, making neat, well-executed art pieces. His search of personal style and development led him to complex look, in which he tries to fade stencils and spray paint using other techniques like acrylic paint and various mixed media.

His piece found next to 'True North' by Nomad Clan as part of the Patrons Project Mural is dedicated to John Marshalls Mill which once was the largest flax mill in England &  Temple Works (Mill) which its design is based on the Temple of Horus at Edfu, Egypt.
