Paul Curtis, the Liverpool street artist renowned for the mural widely recognised as “The Wings,” is organising his first public exhibition at the Royal Liver Building, the very location that served as the inspiration for his now iconic artwork.
After seven years and the creation of over 230 murals, Paul has chosen to gather a collection of his artwork for an event called “In One Place”. However, the artist assures that this exhibition will offer more than just a retrospective showcase.
Paul promotes for the accessibility of art and has collaborated with arts producer Laura McCann to develop an event that will not only exhibit Paul’s current artwork but also feature the artist’s live creation of new pieces and provide opportunities for individuals to engage in various activities.
As Paul explained:
“I’m incredibly excited about what we have planned and to be exhibiting at The Royal Liver Building. It feels like a complete circle to be showing my work in a place so intrinsically linked my first public mural. “For All Liverpool’s Liver Birds”, (aka The Wings), simply wouldn’t exist if I hadn’t been inspired by The Royal Liver Building. It’s the most famous building in Liverpool, and I’m proud beyond words to see my work displayed in such a beautiful space”
Laura McCann, who has organised multiple exhibitions with various artists said:
“I couldn’t be happier to be collaborating with Paul on his first exhibition. We’ve been working on this a long time and the venue is perfect. Ian Edwards from The Royal Liver Building has been incredibly helpful and we are hugely grateful for his support”.
Ian Edwards who is CBRE General Manager and responsible for the day to day running of The Royal Liver Building said:
”Paul’s art is synonymous with Liverpool, you just have to take a walk around the city centre to see how it has improved each and every location. To work alongside Paul and Laura, bringing his first exhibition into The Royal Liver Building, gives the management team here great pride and excitement”.
Paul and Laura will soon disclose the interactive components of the event through their social media platforms, ensuring a diverse range of offerings for everyone. The exhibition “In One Place” opens on February 9th and will be held daily until February 23rd. Admission is free of charge, and is open from 10am to 5pm on weekdays and from 11am to 5pm on weekends.
