Sculpture Description

Launched with the help of the Prince’s Trust, Sofia Barton created Inspiratori Art to showcase a fusion of Anglo-Indo Art. Her bright and colourful paintings reflect the North East and diversity in culture. Her paintings have been exhibited in Edinburgh with Spilt Milk Gallery, Nasty Women UK and Saatchi Gallery in London. ‘Brightside’ is adorned in a burst of rainbow colour, which provides the backdrop for this intricate design based on the monument and history of Earl Charles Grey of Newcastle upon Tyne. This fusion of culture not only captures the diversity of the North East, but the historical events that surround the city of Newcastle upon Tyne.
