UK minister to hand over student's airport art work during India visit

London: Britain's Communities Secretary James Brokenshire will hand-deliver a UK student's award-winning art work to the Indian government on Friday during a visit to India to boost business and technology ties of the country with the Midlands region of England.

The student from Birmingham City University, Anna Kryzhanovska, studying at the Birmingham School of Art, presented a painting of her proposed 'MagBird' sculpture at Birmingham Airport shortly before Brokenshire left for three-day India visit on Wednesday evening.

The UK Cabinet minister, who is also the British government's "Midlands Engine Champion",is currently in India with the Mayor of West Midlands, Andy Street, co-leading a mission of UK companies from the Midlands to India as they seek to further deepen trade links between the UK region and India.

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said: "It's a real pleasure to take this painting to the Indian Government, representing our region's engineering and research strengths, but also showcasing a great artistic talent."
