From Academy Steps Towards Natwest and Kro (after Minus the Bear)
Oil on box canvas 1220 x 914mm
This is the first of the ‘after gig’ paintings that are driven by the adventure and atmosphere of the Manchester ‘student gig scene’, the place Oxford Road – or more precisely The Academy, the road, the bus stop and adjacent buildings; Natwest and Kro. All energised by the fizz and hum of the departing throngs of gig goers.
