UK Street art: He painted Jesus dancing breakdance ... to bring young people to the Church PHOTO


The city of Bristol boasts a striking new landmark after the unveiling of a giant mural depicting a breakdancing Jesus Christ.


Painted by the artist Cosmo Sarson, the 28ft image is officially inspired by an event dating back to 2004, when breakdancers performed for a visibly impressed Pope John Paul II in the Vatican – although there is no specific evidence that he actually declared: “I want a giant breakdancing Jesus in the West Country.”

Sarson’s work will remain on a wall in the Stoke’s Croft area for two years, opposite local hero Banksy’s famous creation, Mild Mild West.
“Breakdancing is all very well, but I still reckon Jesus walking on water edges it,” pointed out one local.
