Jayaben Desai – Wembley

A mural was requested by Brent Council to cover up a wall that was covered in paan spit. Paan spitting is a problem in the area and the idea was to cover a wall in beautiful art in order to prevent people from spitting on it. The lady in the mural is local hero Jayaben Desai. Jayaben Desai (2 April 1933 – 23 December 2010) was a prominent leader of the strikers in the Grunwick dispute in London in 1976. More on this mural here.
