A major new piece of 3D street art, believed to be one of the largest of its kind ever produced in the UK, has been unveiled at Brewery Wharf, changing the view of the landscape from the riverside already.

Using a technique known as anamorphic or forced-perspective art, it has been created by renowned Leeds artist Ralph Replete, who has produced work throughout the city over the last 20 years.

He was given free reign by Rushbond, the real estate group which owns and manages Brewery Wharf, and came up with Washing Marine, depicting a deep-sea diver climbing out of a washing machine laid on its side.

Mr Replete said: “I considered lots of ideas for Brewery Wharf but the shape of the wall, the surrounding residential apartments and the waterfront, paved the way for Washing Marine.”
