A Bradford-born self-taught artist has told of his pride at being given the chance to paint murals in the city’s subways.

Chris Ellerton, of Thorpe Edge, created his eye-catching murals in the subways near Jacobs Well.

Mr Ellerton, who started teaching himself to paint four years ago, said: “I was buzzing when I was asked to do it because I am from Bradford, I was born here.

“I am proud of the work – and I would like to do a few more.”

The 50-year-old’s talents were spotted at the Gateway Community Centre in Ravenscliffe, where he teaches people how to paint. He has done a large seascape mural at the centre.

He added: “I like what I do.”
