iconic black britons

In 2015, The Seven Saints of St Pauls’® exhibition was held. Overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response of those in attendance, the artist, Michele Curtis, quickly realised more needed to be done. Two years later, what started as a one-off exhibition has become a creative movement that is changing the very landscape of Bristol.
