Well Liverpool Resurgent….Britain’s largest piece of Italian street painting and the 2nd James William Carling Pavement Art Competition have come and gone in the blink of an eye. If you missed them; then what can I say…….both events where AMAZING!!!!
You missed a real treat. I’ll be blogging more on both events as soon as I’m able to draw breath but at present both myself and Catherine are totally exhausted…….the emotional and physical challenge of both events have taken their toll and we need complete rest for a week or so…..just to recharge!!!
In the meantime here are the winners of the Pavement Art Competition, Sunday 26th September 2010 and presented in Maggie Mays, Bold Street as part of the Liverpool Bold Street Festival.
