Liverpool Cityscape and the World Panorama Series Walker Art Gallery Until November 2nd 2008
-- BACKGROUND -- Artist Ben Johnson began work on the Liverpool Cityscape in 2004, visiting Liverpool to study the city's architecture. Each individual building was deconstructed and made into a series of intricate stencils. The buildings were 'reconstructed' on the canvas by Ben and his team of assistants, using several hundred hand-mixed colours applied with spray-guns.
The artwork looks at Liverpool from a near bird's eye view - from Chapel Street up Everton on the left and from The Albert Dock to the Anglican Cathedral on the right.
Combine this visit with a trip to St. George's Hall & World Museum - all within the Cultural Quarter
Don't just take my word for it that these are worth a visit - ask The End!
