It has been amazing being involved in this project for the new development at our shopping complex, Fosse Park! A number of foxes are being designed by aspiring local artists with inspiration taken from the city of Leicester. Collectively they will exhibit the history and culture of the city in a public art trail. I was lucky enough to be one of the chosen artists!
My design has been influenced by the renowned diverse cultures of Leicester, rich in vibrancy, unity and celebration! My fox is named ‘Lila’ and has taken particular inspiration from the Indian festivals of Holi (festival of colour) and Diwali (festival of light), together with the art forms of mandala and rangoli.
The art trail is planned to launch alongside the opening of Fosse Park West and Food Central in April 2021, so watch this space for the official unveil!
