Estate gets graffiti project.

A WORLD-renowned graffiti artist is teaming up with a Birmingham housing estate to draw people's dreams.

Street artist Mohammed "Aerosol" Ali will be working with unemployed young men on the Bromford estate on a week-long mural project called Mural Dreams.

The scheme, which is also being run by the University of Birmingham's department of theology and religion and the Hub project in Bromford, will see members dreams painted on a giant cube.

The work will be unveiled to the rest of the community on Saturday.

Mohammed has previously painted murals in cities including New York, Chicago, Melbourne and Dubai.

He said: "We have problems in our society, we see divided communities.

"It's time to inject creativity when dealing with these issues."
