Mapping the Burley Banksy, Leeds United street art
Pride in Leeds United has been restored to the city thanks to the great performances we have seen under Marcelo Bielsa. Leeds United shirts are visible more and more around the city but there was another surprising emergence of the white, blue and yellow courtesy of Andy McVeigh, the Burley Banksy. Telecoms cabinets and bollards around Elland Road and across the city were been painted in Leeds United colours by Leeds fan, musician and amateur artist Andy in tribute to his beloved Leeds United. The cabinets of various shapes and sizes featured Leeds United chants, famous kit designs and the names and numbers of some of United’s greatest players.
Be it the classic Burton kit of the 80s, Yeboah 21, ‘We are Leeds’ or ‘Vamos Leeds Carajo’ in tribute to Marcelo Bielsa signing up for a second season the decorated cabinets brought colour and cheer to people on their daily commute and to plenty of match goers. The Terrace have even turned some of the iconic designs into really cool merchandise in their Burley Banksy collection. We have tried to map these amazing pieces of street art along with some other Leeds United landmarks and murals dotted around the city in the hope that more fans can seek them out as part of their matchday experience.
We are sure to have missed some so if you see any whilst you are out and about drop us an image and the location to our Twitter account @motforum with the hashtag #burleybanksy
