‘Baltic Liver Bird’ artist unveils latest piece at Liverpool Shopping Park

A local artist best known for his ‘For all Liverpool’s Liver Birds’ mural in the Baltic Triangle, has completed his latest commission at the new Liverpool Shopping Park.

Titled ‘The Colourful City’ – Paul Curtis has created a 100 sq ft piece of brightly coloured artwork on site hoardings, which can be seen as shoppers enter the park.

The new hoardings surround the land designated for future development of Liverpool Shopping Park.

Paul’s design depicts 31 of the city’s landmarks, the history of Edge Lane, the city and the site’s connection with Meccano.

Paul poses in front of his work.

Paul started work on the design just before the park’s first retailers opened last month and it has taken more than four weeks and 28 litres of paint to complete.

Paul says: “I’m Liverpool born and bred and have a real love for capturing the city’s spirit and icons in my paintings.

“The main focus of the design is undoubtedly Liverpool’s best-known landmarks and some of buildings have been reworked to appear like they have Meccano sections, in a nod to the site’s history.”

Paul’s artwork is the second art installation at Liverpool Shopping Park, which is also home to the world’s largest Liver Bird, standing at 11 metres tall and made out of Meccano.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson officially opens Liverpool Shopping Park.
