7 photos of sexually-charged street art that’s appeared in Brum ahead of Pride celebrations
A massive risqué mural has appeared in Southside to celebrate Birmingham Pride 2019, which takes place this May Bank Holiday weekend.
Birmingham street artist Gent48 is behind the huge new wall art, which has the word ‘BRUM’ taking centre stage in an otherwise incredibly saucy backdrop.
Painted on a wall inside the Mixmag Dance Arena space which has access via Hurst Street, the street art features naked bodies and depicts visual representations of sexuality. If you look carefully, you can see muscle-bound bearded sailor flexing his biceps, a pair of long legs in black high-heels, red hot lips and two bodies intwined for what appears to be some intimate love-making.
The Mixmag Arena will be predominantly, but not exclusively, be dominated by artists and acts who identify as female; and it appears Gent48 has aimed to capture the essence of LGBTQ+ womxn in his vivid creation.
Gent48 has previously taken part in Birmingham based street art festivals such as Hi Vis Fest and City of Colours.
The artist’s recognisable style of painting is very distinctive, and this new wall will no doubt generate lots of interest from visitors flocking to the annual Birmingham Pride weekend from tomorrow!
Here’s a closer look at the Birmingham Pride sexy street art:
