There Is A Giant Breakdancing Jesus In Bristol Now

Why the hell not, eh?

1. A wall in Bristol has been painted with a 8.5m breakdancing Jesus.

2. The work, by Cosmo Sarson, is opposite Banksy’s famous Mild Mild West artwork in Stokes Croft.

3. According to James Pike, the businessman who commissioned the painting, it is a “celebration of Bristol’s proud history of religious tolerance”.

Sarson was inspired by a 2004 Vatican event which saw breakdancers perform for Pope John Paul II. Breakdancing Jesus took a week to finish and contains over 1kg (2.5lbs) of gold glitter.
