A colossal painting previously hidden from the public eye has become a permanent fixture for all of Sheffield to enjoy

Inspired by the Mexican mural movement led by Diego Rivera, this painting depicts the global and political climate of the world during the late to mid-70s. The chronology of oppression and colonialism can be felt through the careful brushstrokes of the two Chilean emigres who created this piece.

A year ago, this hidden jewel was gathering dust in storage, having been secluded away from the now-demolished Sheffield Centre Against Unemployment. Before its containment, the centre kept the painting hidden behind a temporary stud wall.

Now, thanks to the help of volunteers, DINA Arts Centre has managed to restore the art piece to its rightful environment in which audiences from across the city are able to admire the exhibit.
