Harry Potter Mural
Harry Potter attended Anfield Primary School In Liverpool before he went to Hogworts. Well he didn't really, but the idea of this inspired a re-imagining of some of Liverpool's most iconic landmarks in Hogsmeade style. This massive mural adorns the canteen hall at Anfield Primary.
This was an epic two week project that includes the Liver Building, Royal Albert Dock, the Metropolitan Cathedral, Liverpool Cathedral, St Lukes "bombed-out" church, Liverpool Town Hall, Liverpool Castle, St Johns Beacon and of course, Anfield Primary School.
The kids loved it although a couple of them were a bit spooked by the brooding castle and tower.
Earth from Anfield
The whole wide world captured on the side of Anfield Primary School in Liverpool.
The earth is approximately 6 metres in diameter. It was a spot of good luck that the circumference matched up exactly with the curved window lintel.
The painting is in the school yard. The school has an international mix of children and hopefully the kids will be able to teach each other a little, pointing out which part of the world their families hail from.
Sir David Attenborough Mural
This mural of David Attenborough was painted in 2020 by Paul Curtis. It can be found on the wall of a long corridor at Anfield Primary School in Liverpool. As well as celebrating everyone's favourite adopted grandfather, Sir David Attenborough, it is used to teach the children about both nature and art. The jungle is filled with animals such as tigers, monkeys, toucans and others birds. Some of them are hidden so that the kids can have some fun finding them all. The style of the painting pays tribute to the great, French artist, Henri Rousseau. It draws inspiration from some of his most famous pieces, such as "Tropical Storm with Tiger", "Apes in The Orange Grove" and "The Dream". The artist, Paul Curtis, is a big fan of Henri Rousseau and said, "This mural was great fun to work on, and I found it really interesting to try and emulate the style of one of the greats. Anfield Primary is a great school, and the kids must love coming here!"
Beatrix Meadow Mural
A tribute to the the books and characters that Beatrix Potter created, painted at Anfield Primary. The mural follows the four seasons and teaches the kids a bit about the flora of the seasons.
