What 10,000 hrs worth of artwork looks like...

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?).

Paul started from scratch and with no previous experience but has gradually gained a loyal following. You too can follow him on both Instagram and Facebook

Some of Paul's key achievements include:

UK record for largest painting ever painted by one person (

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

Charlie Landsborough
