Local Artist Paints a Blinder

Friday, 23rd August 2019

TAMWORTH artist Sue Verity has had one of her paintings selected to be part of the promotion campaign for the upcoming series 5 of the BBC’s TV show Peaky Blinders.

Sue’s blinder of a painting of Arthur Shelby was selected as one of 16 from over 1000 entries in the BBC’s Peaky’s Fan Art competition and will be seen online and on posters nationwide.

“As a fan of Peaky Blinders I was delighted my painting was selected as one of the winning entries,” Sue said, “Arthur has such a complex character I wanted to capture one side of his personality.”
