Environmental Artists place their mark on Munro House in Leeds as Human Nature leaves its legacy

Munro House in Leeds describes itself as being the gateway to Leeds Art Quarter and you can see why. An imposing building built in Leeds industrial heyday it now houses creative studios and regularly puts on shows and exhibitions.

Our interest though is a little more basic and we were drawn to the area after learning that some friends of Inspiring City had left their mark on the building following the successful ‘Human Nature‘ show held at the venue earlier this year.

That show was the second iteration which followed an initial launch of the Human Nature franchise at the Hoxton Gallery last year. It focused on showcasing the work of environmental artists and it’s planned that the exhibition will tour locations around the country with the next stop being Bristol in July. In particular, Human Nature features work from the likes of ATM, Jonesy, Jane Laurie and the chewing gum man, Ben Wilson. All those artists are keen to draw attention to environmental issues close to their heart.
