The panels which represent Lime Street’s past

March 12, 2018

Liverpool’s Lime Street is so iconic because of it’s unique, rich history which local artist, Anthony Brown, has captured beautifully in his artwork which is now displayed on the facade of the new building. Anthony Brown has shaped that vision by creating a large-scale graphic art work that will act as an impressive welcome to visitors that arrive in the city and serve to remind those that live in Liverpool of the neighbourhood’s rich heritage and stories.

Anthony explained his inspiration for the graphic art that will feature on the Lime Street development: ‘With this work, our intention is to capture and reflect the history while commemorating the development of a truly unique street –  and one of the most important areas in the city of Liverpool.’

He added: ‘We have created an accessible ‘Quantum Timeline’ using illustrative graphic images and archived text to immortalise the development, buildings, business, people and heritage of Lime Street which was formally known as Limekiln Lane. It will serve to forever mark & display “what was” as we celebrate “what comes next”’

Anthony was born in Merseyside, graduating from Wirral Metropolitan School of Art and the Liverpool School of Printing. His work moves freely between contemporary art and abstract art amongst many mediums and he will use his trademark illustrative style on Lime Street. Anthony has previously created iconic pieces of public art in the city and is famed for his ‘100 heads Thinking As One’ exhibitions which celebrated Liverpool’s 800 Year Charter through 100 portraits of people who were chosen for their contribution to Liverpool life.
