The Newport Chartist Mural 

The Newport Chartist Rising of 1839 has forged the democratic identity of modern Newport. The Newport Chartist Mural, Newport's first prominent landmark to the 1839 Newport Chartist Rising, was erected in a pedestrian tunnel in John Frost Square, Newport in 1978. The monumental mosaic mural by artist Kenneth Budd is 120 foot long and 12 foot high and contains 200,000 separate pieces of mosaic tile.
