Canvas helps St Helens artist reach online audience

Back to News

Prototype Project artist Drunk Wolf is taking his work to a new audience.

Canvas, funded by Arts Council England, came to St Helens to meet the artist to showcase his recent solo exhibition at The World of Glass.

St Helens Goes Pop, which draws on his experiences growing up in the town. His pop-art style work reimagines some of St Helens’ most famous characters and landmarks, from Johnny Vegas and Rick Astley to St Helens RFC, alongside lesser-known local characters that he has immortalised in portraits and Star Wars figurines.

The exhibition was made possible by Heart of Glass. The film was produced by Carl Davies of FACT Liverpool and funded by the Arts Council’s Sky Amplify initiative

Canvas is the home of the UK Arts scene on Youtube. Their aim is to inspire younger audiences to explore the wonderful world of art, showcasing videos from some of the UK’s leading arts organisations as well as producing our own series.
