Peaky Street Art in Rennes, France
As well as being a world-wide hit, Peaky Blinders has inspired some fantastic public art around the globe. Springing up overnight, these heartfelt public tributes are more moving than any endorsements by celebrity fans.
Of course it is not altogether surprising that Peaky street art has sprung up in Birmingham, UK where the show is based. At least 2 murals have sprung up there - one of Tommy in St Paul's Square in the Jewellery Quarter and another in Dale End next to the Peaky Blinders Pub which features the gang as well as Tommy.

But the phenomenon is not limited to Birmingham or even the UK. As you can see from the photo at the top of this post, Peaky Blinders is especially popular in France and Peaky street art has popped up in the Breton town of Rennes, depicting Tommy and several gang members. The USA also has many fans of the show and in Venice California one fan has paid tribute to the Brummy don with a mural of Tommy backed by the artist's tag.

I might be stretching a point here but it is art and it is on the street so here are some images of Daz Copson's lorry, to be seen on the roads of the Midlands.
