Breakdancing Jesus Mural Unveiled In Bristol

A giant mural of Jesus breakdancing has been unveiled in Bristol.

Cosmo Sarson, the artist behind the piece, spent four days working on it after winning a competition to commission his design, which used a kilogram of glitter.
It is inspired by when breakdancers performed for Pope John Paul II in the Vatican in 2004.

It will remain on the 8.5-metre wall beside The Canteen venue for the next two years, and the design has been put directly opposite the Banksy artwork Mild Mild West.
 Jamie Pike, who works in The Canteen, said to The Mirror: "Breakdancing Jesus represents everything Bristol should be proud of.

"We have a proud history of religious tolerance, incredible cultural diversity and a vibrant creative history. Breakdancing Jesus is a celebration of that."
Sean Redmond, a judge of the competition, added: "The work raises questions about how Christ would interact and communicate with contemporary culture if He returned today."
