Liverpool - an architectural celebration

Liverpool Places and Faces

A new picture blending some of the cities most fascinating permanent faces with some classic signage: Includes, in the faces, the Pier Head sculptures, heads featuring on the Cunard Building, a mannequin from Quiggins, the chained men behind Liverpool Town Hall and the lions at St. George’s Hall.

Liverpool Town and Gown

There is now a large collection of pictures of Liverpool Unviersity and its environs. This picture was commissioned by a client who wanted to blend both the town and the university of Liverpool, with images of buildings and places from Victorian times right up to the new Museum of Liverpool which is brand new. By blending neutral colours with brilliant psychodelic colours, there is a real relationship in the picture between academia and fun

Signs of the Times Liverpool

A collection of classic and original signs, some of which have already disappeared, which are resonant of the city. Street, shop, pub and business names, created during the past 150 years are worked together into an art piece.
The picture can be created at a number of different sizes - and if you would like a particular name - your own street name, business name or simply a sign that means something to you which does not appear in the work, then I’m happy to discuss taking extra pictures and working them into the design so it is a one-off picture for you.
