Red Rum Mural
Paul's most recent mural is a street art tribute to the most famous race horse in the world, Red Rum. This time lapse and footage records Liverpool artist, Paul Curtis, painting a huge mural in honour of the legendary horse. The mural is 15 metres tall and 20 metres wide (300 square metres) - the biggest Paul has painted to date. It was commissioned by The Sefton Borough of Culture Committee in March 2020. The mural is located at Marine Drive in Southport, Merseyside. Red Rum will forever be tightly linked to Southport as it was here that he was stabled. Trainer, Ginger McCain, would put Rummy through his paces by taking him for a gallop along Southport Beach. It is this regular sight during the 1970's that I have tried to capture. Red Rum is galloping towards the viewer, right at the water's edge, with the spray and froth from the sea exploding in his wake. Red Rum is the most successful Grand National horse ever. He holds the record for the most wins (three, 1973, 1974, and 1977) and runner up twice (1975 and 1976).
