“I want the mural to reflect residents' thoughts and feelings about living here”
Over a series of workshops in an empty shop front on the high street, Cherie will share some of the techniques she uses to create her work, and invites residents to get involved. As well as getting creative, each workshop will be a space to share stories and suggestions about what inspires the local community. Ideas and designs shared in these workshops will inspire the mural, which will be unveiled in May 2024.
Cherie Grist is an artist from Stockbridge, based in Liverpool and works across fine art, digital art and fashion.
This project is the tenth mural in a series of public artworks created in collaboration with communities across Merseyside. Each design is unique to the location and the people involved.
To date, we have worked with artists Billy Colours, Carrie Reichardt, Faunagraphic, Emma Colbert, Nomad Clan, Annie Nicholson and Jo Peel. Each piece has been made with communities including Holy Spirit Primary School; SHAP housing residents, women from CGL; Huyton residents, businesses and shopkeepers; young people from The Lee Cooper Foundation and Newton Community Centre, and staff from Northern.
