The Liverpool School of Artists
Share:

The Liverpool School art movement was launched at its first official exhibition at Liverpool Cathedral in 2014.

The exhibition demonstrated the range of work being created by the four founding members under the parameters set out in the movement’s manifesto.

This is the first new art movement to be created for at least 40 years and the third art organisation to be created in Liverpool, the previous ones being the Sandon Society, formed in 1905, based at the Bluecoat and a much earlier Liverpool school of painters called the Liverpool Academy, first formed in 1769 but which had disappeared by the end of the 19th century.

Like the Sandon Society, the Liverpool School was formed by four graduates – three from Liverpool Hope University and one from Liverpool John Moores University.

The Liverpool School’s basic aim is to redefine urban art in geometric painting, both 2D and 3D, using city life, buildings and transportation as its inspiration – anything which depicts and portrays the rhythms of urban life.  As an aesthetic, the urban landscape may be regarded as the vision a society projects about itself into the future.

Each of the Liverpool School members interpret the city landscape in their own way and in their own distinctive styles. The movement is not a straightjacket restricting how the world should be viewed but rather it points in a new general direction for urban art to take.


All artwork is for sale

The exhibition is displayed on the first floor and is available for viewing Monday – Saturday.
