The Leeds United Supporters’ Trust is set to bring the next LUFC themed mural to life, thanks to the design and vision of artist Nicolas Dixon.

The new mural is part of the ongoing project by LUST to celebrate the rich history of Leeds United all around across the city through different types of themed art.

Designs for the mural showcase a special tribute to four Leeds United greats that have recently passed away - Jack Charlton, Norman Hunter, Trevor Cherry and Peter Lorimer.

Leeds United mural underway at Pudsey Market to honour legends including Jack Charlton and Norman Hunter

The Supporters’ Trust are working with Leeds based artist Nicolas Dixon, creator of the ‘Bielsa The Redeemer’ Mural in Wortley Leeds, who has designed and painted what’s set to be a standout mural using his inspiring biomorphic shapes and vivid colours.

The 33ft mural is being painted on the side of the Avanta Care Ltd building which directly overlooks Pudsey Market.

It is hoped that the new mural will attract more visitors and give an extra boost to trade in the market.

Leeds United Supporters’ Trust said “This mural has been a long time coming and it has taken a lot of planning and time to get it to this stage – thanks to Nicolas’ tenacity and passion.

"We really hope the mural, which faces Pudsey Market, will bring lots of new faces and custom to boost local trade. We can’t wait to get started and unveil it!

"We’re really pleased to have worked in partnership with our friends at LUSCOS, our Scandinavian Supporters club who have supported financially, as well as the fans mural fund, and the two local businesses Avanta Care Ltd and Barker Harding.”
