Artist Paul Curtis to give away mural made for Danny Boyle film

Liverpool artist Paul Curtis is looking to donate his film star mural from the set of a Danny Boyle movie to a worthy organisation in the city.

The painting was created to feature in a forthcoming production by the ‘Trainspotting’ director and Richard Curtis, which was recently being filmed in Liverpool.

Paul, the artist behind the Baltic Triangle’s popular ‘For All Liverpool’s Liver Birds’ wings and a recently painted Michael Jackson mural off Seel Street, was commissioned by Three Act Pictures to produce the 10 metre-wide artwork.

He is now calling for organisations such as schools, community centres, hospitals and orphanages interested in providing a permanent home for the colourful creation to come forward.

Featuring some of Liverpool’s most famous landmarks including the Royal Liver Building and St George’s Hall, the 2.4m-tall mural has been painted on fireproof MDF and must be displayed indoors.

Launching a social media appeal this week to find a new owner, Paul, whose work has been popping up all over the city at restaurants and bars to housing developments and shopping centres, told followers: “The only condition is that the piece is NOT sold or auctioned off.

“If you would like it, or know a suitable organisation, please message me.

“If there is more than one place wanting it, we will draw the winner out of a hat.”

During the filming of forthcoming big screen release, which Paul says is “a romcom with a heavy dose of Beatles references”, the artwork was set up in the city’s Lime Street Station.

The film is expected to be released in 2019.
