Liverpool artwork of the day – Friday April 27 2007. ‘Liverpool Scream’ by Alex Corina at Lark Lane Atelier. Viewing Saturday April 28 18-20.00
As well as being in the exhibition of works by Corina and Ian C Taylor at the Atelier this piece is actually Alex’s limited edition local council election campaign poster.
Its a nice idea – politics as art or the art of politics etc. Hope he does well but he’s standing as an independent and I’ll be voting Labour as always.
Voters in the Cressington ward in South Liverpool, where Corina is standing as an independent candidate, will this week receive a free A3 size poster of his latest work, “Liverpool Scream” to accompany his election manifesto.
Inspired by Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”, Corina’s mixture of cartoon and collage highlights what he calls “Liverpool’s litany of letdowns” since it secured the Capital of Culture title in June 2003.
“Liverpool Scream” is a companion piece to Corina’s best known work, “Mona Lennon,” which portrayed Leonardo’s creation with the face of the former Beatle in a celebration of Scouse culture
