A new mural painted by Derry’s Bogside Artists in Slovenia, is to be unveiled by His Holiness The Dalai Lama later this month.

The new work in Maribor, the European City of Culture 2012, will form part of the centrepiece of its forthcoming cultural festival.

Situated outside the Slovenian National Theatre, the piece is to be officially unveiled on May 17.

The Bogside Artists themselves have been busy of late, having just recently returned from a trip to the USA.

Artist Tom Kelly said the trio were looking forward to meeting His Holiness The Dalai Lama.

“We see this as an honour for the people of Derry,” he said.
