The work of a much loved Stonebridge artist who died from cancer in April is to be exhibited in the SSE Arena in Wembley.
More than 50 paintings done by David Anthony Bailey will be displayed as part of a Brent Borough Diversity Celebration and Metropolitan Police recruitment campaign on August 26.
The 49-year-old, who lived in Crawford Street, died from a brain tumour..
His younger sister, Maxine Bailey, 48, said: “I was approached by a police officer who said they were looking to display art and asked if David’s work could be displayed. It’s a great idea to showcase his painting.”
Father to three children, daughter Tyehemba, 21 and sons Shakir, 19 and Lyes, 17, Mr Bailey dedicated his life to charitable events.
