Breakdancing Jesus

WIbreakdancing.jpgA giant mural of Jesus breakdancing has been unveiled on a wall in Bristol. The piece is inspired by a visit to the Vatican by a group of breakdancers. It took the artist Cosmo Sarson a week - and more than a kilo of glitter - to complete after he won the prestigious commission, which stands opposite a locally-famous Banksy image.

Jamie Pike, who commissioned the image, said: 'Breakdancing Jesus represents everything Bristol should be proud of. We have a history of religious tolerance, incredible cultural diversity and a vibrant creative history. Breakdancing Jesus is a celebration of that.'

Sean Redmond, a competition judge, added: 'The work raises questions about how Christ would interact and communicate with contemporary culture if he returned today.'
