This mural depicts many of Liverpool's famous landmarks in one of Paul Curtis' trademark styles. Black and white monochrome line drawings with heavy, bold shadows and a few bold colours picked out. This style manages to combine the complexity of the architecture, in a unique, clean look, but holds the viewer's eye with the sheer amount of detail to explore. Painted at the Unite Student Accommodation on Skelhorn Street in Liverpool (near to Lime Street Station). It took 9 days and is around 5 metres wide by 7 metres tall.
The landmarks include: The Liver Building, Port of Liverpool Building, Liverpool Cathedral, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, Mersey Ferry, Superlambanana, Chinese Arch, Liverpool Town Hall, Museum of Liverpool, St John's Beacon, 30 James Street.

Dirty Maggie Mae - The Beatles . The mural was painted at the Lock and Key Hotel in Liverpool by Paul Curtis Maggie Mae was a famous prostitute who plied her trade around Lime Street. She was immortalised in the song, Maggie Mae (no, not the Rod Stewart one!), which is a traditional shanty/skiffle number in Liverpool.

A mural of the stunning Audrey Hepburn painted by Liverpool artist, Paul Curtis for the David Myers Opticians in Southport, Lancashire. The beautiful actress and fashionista is depicted in a hat and sunglasses from the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's. The mural was painted on roller shutters, which always presents problems for murals, due to the undulating surface. I am particularly proud of this one, as this is the style of painting I really enjoy the most.
