Artist's Description

In honour of the The Right Worshipful the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Magid Magid.

Magid Magid, or Magic Magid as he is known to his social media followers, is the 122nd Lord Mayor of Sheffield

Magid came to Sheffield aged 5 with his family from Somalia where they made Sheffield their home. Magid grew up in the S4 area of Sheffield where he attended Fir Vale Secondary School.

After a year out travelling around the world, Magid went to the University of Hull where he studied Aquatic Zoology. At University, Magid played an active role and became involved in all aspects of University life. He founded and led the University of Hull’s MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) Club where he was given his fight name ‘Magic Magid the Submission Magician’. He was also heavily involved in his Students Union and this is where he found the love for activism which led him to be elected as the President of his Students Union.

Magid has a wide pallet of experience from running his own digital marketing business, working for the housing charity Shelter, to being self-employed. As well as being an anti-racism social justice campaigner, Magid wanted to play a more active role in his community and decided to stand as a Green Party Councillor for the ward ‘Broomhill & Sharrow Vale’ where he was elected in 2016.

On becoming Lord Mayor of Sheffield Magid said;

“Although it seems a bit surreal that I am Lord Mayor of my home city Sheffield, it is a real privilege and honour. Sheffield welcomed me and my family with open arms and this is one way I can truly give back to this incredible city that has given me and others so much. During my tenure I will be focussing on championing young people and celebrating all the amazing creative culture that we produce”.

Design loosely based on the iconic Barack Obama “Hope” poster by artist Shepard Fairey.
