The mural has been painted by artistic duo Nomad Clan who have used Doncaster’s rich history to inspire their latest artwork.

The street art is named Future’s Past and Present and includes elements such as a portrait of a miner, horses racing and the iconic Conisbrough Castle.

Jeff Clark, director of Art of Protest Projects, said: “I am in absolute awe of what they’ve done to the wall.

“It represents people of the future and I certainly see the future of the creative people of Doncaster within this painting.

“It is something to be proud of, not just now but forever.”
