The second of four art installations created by students from Leeds Arts University has been unveiled at 5 Wellington Place.

After an array of competition entries submitted by students across various courses, the judging panel whittled it down to just four successful artists to showcase their own creations with the difficult decision left to representatives from the companies that occupy the latest development from MEPC.

Inspiration was taken from Leeds and its surroundings with entrants using a mix of techniques. The second piece to be displayed is a city skyline by illustration degree student Janice Leung.

She said: “It’s a great opportunity to showcase our work. Leeds is such a refreshing city and I hope I can inspire others to appreciate the beauty and character of the buildings around us, as that’s what makes each city unique.

“I wanted the piece to focus on details in the skyline that people may not otherwise notice when they walk through the city, particularly with the constant developments that are changing the landscape.

“The project has confirmed my passion to pursue this as a career.”
