I began painting ‘The Liverpool Sound’ in August 2017, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the ‘Sgt Peppers’ album release. The purpose was to emphasise the vast diversity of Liverpool bands (besides the “Fab Four”) which have made the city proud, including The Farm, Echo & The Bunnymen and The Real Thing. In April 2018, after roughly 109 hours of painting the 18×14″ canvas (and a few tantrums where I almost gave up), ‘The Liverpool Sound’ was finally completed!

Why “I Con Art”?

The trading name “I Con Art” derives from the fact that I don’t have any training or art qualifications to speak of but more specifically relates to the subject matter of my commercially-focused pieces – I have an ever-expanding portfolio of work that features iconic figures and scenes from the world of cinema, television, music and sport.  My favourite subjects to paint are iconic people as well as beautiful animals, an example of which is illustrated perfectly below…
