This piece is an emotional, cryptic collection of ideas, inspirations and experiences. The contrast of two completely different styles of artwork- watercolour blocks and fine art illustration- is synchronised with the diverse and accepting city it represents. The second of my Manchester series encompassing over a hundred aspects of Mancunian life- and that’s just the city centre! My passion for this city is rooted in its diversity, size and culture. Walking around the city centre you can see architecture in many styles, built through decades of trends, styles and industrial influence. These elements are combined with the humours of life in the North West, such as a lady holding an umbrella and large amounts of water throughout.
