'Liverpool School Artists Return’ - Urban Art Exhibition (until 19 Feb)


Well of the Cathedral
13th - 19th February 2016
10:00 - 17:00 (each day)

An exhibition of geometric urban art from a Liverpool art movement using city life, buildings and transportation – anything which depicts and portrays the rhythms of city life.The term "urban" means "from the city" derived from the Latin 'urbanus'.

This current exhibition shows how their work has developed in the past two years as well as giving art lovers a second opportunity to see some of the work on display two years ago.

The city of Liverpool is famous for many things – the Beatles, its famous waterfront with its “Three Graces” of the Liver Building, Cunard Building and Port of Liverpool building, the Grand National and many other things and Liverpool also has a thriving arts culture that is arguably better known outside the UK than it is within it. This year an arts movement born in Liverpool is to hold its second exhibition at the Cathedral.

It will be formally opened by former Lord Mayor Gary Millar who also opened the movement’s first exhibition in 2012. He is now an ambassador for the city all over the world.

The movement was created by former journalist and arts graduate Mike Rickett in 2010. The movement now has eight members, mostly living in Liverpool but also in Birmingham and Ireland.

The School's aim is to redefine urban art in hard-edge, geometric painting using the Liverpool and northwest landscape as its inspiration in a bid to make Liverpool a centre of art in its own right free from the domination of London.

You are cordially invited to send a representative to the private view at Liverpool Cathedral on Friday, February 12, at 6.30pm.

Admission to the Cathedral and the exhibition is FREE

Car parking is pay on exit
