The city of Wakefield and the Ridings Centre has become a backdrop for the first ever UK piece of Global Angels Wings street art, by international artist Colette Miller.

An exterior wall of The Ridings Shopping Centre has now been adorned with a pair of human-sized angel wings, which invite people to become part of the art by standing in front of them to take photos.

Based in LA, Miller created the Global Angel Wings Project in her home city in 2012 and has since painted wings around the world, to remind humanity that they are ‘the angels of this earth’.

Speaking about the Wakefield installation, Miller says, “I'm really excited to be bringing the Global Angel Wings Project to Wakefield and Yorkshire and I’ve read about its layered and fascinating history. I haven't had any wings in England yet so this will be the first pair. I understand that Wakefield and The Ridings are bringing a lot of energy and focus to bringing positivity to this area and if I can play a small part in it in any way I am completely grateful.”
