Paul's 5 year anniversary
In August 2017, Paul Curtis painted his first piece of street art: a pair of copper oxide green wings (this was before the "wings" craze went caught on and they started appearing everywhere!) representing Liverpool's Liver Birds entitled "For all Liverpool's Liver Birds". This was an instant hit and allowed Paul, who was unemployed, to become a professional artist.
Since that first mural, he has gone on to paint over 200 murals of varying styles, size and subject. The majority of these are located around Merseyside and Wirral in the North West of England.
This video is a very concentrated record of the artworks. Some murals and most canvas artworks have been omitted in order to keep the video relatively short. However there are videos documenting each year of Paul's work available to view (search my YoutTube channel).
It is possible to see how a street artist improves over five years of practice. The murals become more ambitious as the years pass and the standard really starts to improve (10,000 hours of practice theory?).
Some of Paul's key achievements include:
UK record for largest painting ever painted by one person (https://www.paulcurtisartwork.com/ain...)
Liverpool Region Artist of the Year 2020
Ambassador of Liverpool for the World Gymnastics Championships 2022
Some of the key murals shown in the video include:
Ainsley and Dale (The Ainsdale Sand Lizards)
The New Ferry Project (18 large street art pieces in one village)
The Abbey Road Backdrop
Baby Ethan Street Art
Anne Williams Memorial
Southport's Red Rum Mural
The Clockmaker of Ormskirk
The Penny Lane Beatles
A number of murals for Liverpool FC, Everton FC, Tranmere Rovers FC and Marine FC
The Birkenhead Drill
Please follow the channel to see the latest videos about Paul's work. It's been an incredible journey over the last five years and hopefully it will continue for many many years to come.
Painted as a surprise 'welcome back' for the young'uns at Brackenwood Primary School in Bebington. I had a lot of fun playing about with the light and dark with this one. I think it really brightens up a plain old wall. Hope the kids like it.

Had a lot of fun doing this one, especially working on my weather prediction skills ⛈️⛈️⛈️. Check out how I have managed to make the gate threshold disappear, an under-appreciated skill that one.
Keep your eyes peeled for this most recent murals webpage and construction video.
