Visual artist, costume designer, and Millinery graduate Rhian Kempadoo-Millar has designed the Reflections of Carnival mural in Chapeltown to celebrate the rich and vibrant history of Leeds West Indian Carnival.
Rhian graduated from Leeds Arts University (formerly known as Leeds College of Art) in Millinery and has worked as a costume designer for carnival, video games and film between the UK, USA and The Caribbean for over 25 years.
"I am aiming to create something which honours Leeds West Indian Carnival and makes the community proud of all we have achieved artistically and culturally over these years.”
The mural is part of East Street Arts’ award-winning ‘A City Less Grey’ series which brings new and unique artwork to the streets and neighbourhoods of Leeds. Rhian’s mural can now be viewed at 33 Savile Mount, Chapeltown, LS7 3HZ.
