Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Artist Mohammed Ali creates his graffiti mural Artist Mohammed Ali creates his graffiti mural

A graffiti artist has completed the UK’s longest mural at the University of Bradford.

Mohammed Ali completed the 950 square metres of his distinctive murals, for his latest project, Life in the Wall, at the university yesterday.

He said creating the piece has been one of the most exciting and challenging projects he has undertaken.

He sad: “I have been to many different places and I have been quite fortunate to travel to some pretty exciting cities around the globe and being in Bradford has been one of the most exciting and challenging projects. I think it’s because it was so meaningful and so supportive – the university and all the partners have been really supportive and really believed in this project.”

Mr Ali has centred his painting around quotes from activists and public figures on themes such as unity, positive changes and the environment.

What a total plonker with his vandalism masquerading as art. Please deface it if you get chance then he will know how it feels. Also make sure you park in parent and child spaces at supermarkets.

this will ensure our city really looks like the ghetto! Bradford University must rethink this nonsense.

I saw a programme featuring this artist. His work looked beautiful. I haven't been down to the university yet, but I look forward to seeing it.

Partridge, He was invited to do the work, so it's hardly 'defacing' anything. Maybe you should see the whole thing before commenting? Asking people to vandalise an artwork is pretty low, even if you personally don't like it.

Bitterness and jealously (and possibly racism), won't get you anywhere, Partridge :)
