This week the University of West London is celebrating its world famous alumnus Freddie Mercury
This week the University of West London is celebrating its world famous alumnus, Freddie Mercury, by joining forces with outdoor media specialist Rapport, Twentieth Century Fox, Regency Enterprises and Global Street Art Agency to unveil a striking and highly visible mural of his image on our Paragon Building.
The epic mural has been hand-painted by world-renowned street art agency, Global Street Art and took just four days to complete. It will remain in place throughout the month of October on the Paragon building, which is the main hub of the University’s Brentford campus and student accommodation, and provides the perfect site for ultimate impact.
The installation coincides with the release of Twentieth Century Fox and Regency Enterprises’ long-awaited film, Bohemian Rhapsody. In cinemas from 24 October, the film is a celebration of legendary British rock band Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer, Freddie Mercury.
Freddie earned a diploma in Art & Graphic Design at Ealing Art College, now the London School of Film, Media and Design at UWL. He would later go on to use his art skills to design the Queen heraldic arms.
