Salford’s very own imagined Colliseum discovered on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal/Bridgewater Canal holds illustrative court over a double whammy of creative inspiration from two artists poles apart yet twinned by the same singular vision of being the very visual voice of the people of their times and places. A bold epitaph/wall mural this maybe, but in LS Lowry and Banksy’s case(s) their connection to the people is unchallenged.
Another person whose own unique brand of contemporary 3D art which truly resonates with his adoring public is the critically acclaimed John Wilson, whose very latest, hotly anticipated new composition has just been released/available to pre-order. ‘Two Canals’ borrows heavily from both Lowry and Banksy hereabouts in this unique, Wilson signed limited edition study. If in any doubt just look at the stencil girl, Che Guevera and silhouette of LS himself; and then marvel at the Lowry-esque distant landscape for value added cross appeal. Priceless it may first appear, yet yours if you act quick.
