Manchester Urban Art Prints

Manchester is a major city in the northwest of England with a rich industrial heritage. The Castlefield conservation area’s 18th-century canal system recalls the city’s days as a textile powerhouse, and visitors can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry. The revitalised Salford Quays dockyards now house the Daniel Libeskind-designed Imperial War Museum North and the Lowry cultural centre.

Walking on Air

This walkway was a replacement for an earlier bridge, wrecked by the force of the IRA terrorist blast in June 1996. Links Manchester Arndale and Selfridges & M&S Stores. Classic monochrome print.

Royal Exchange Theatre

The Royal Exchange was heavily damaged in the Manchester Blitz and in the 1996 Manchester bombing. Re-opened in 1998 by Prince Edward. Another classic monochrome print of a unique Manchester landmark building.

Castlefield Heritage Park

It's an experience unique to Manchester. Canals can be found elsewhere in other cities in UK but none this close to the busy city centre and ever expanding highrises. Canal cruises and a water taxi services navigate the canals of Manchester.

Withy Grove Store Manchester.

Withy Grove Noir

The shop itself is one of those oddities. It’s basically a safe shop that time forgot, one that is seemingly never open, has no customers and hasn’t had a lick of paint in about 50 years. Don't count out this store, it's got a history for survival.

Royal

The Royal Exchange was heavily damaged in the Manchester Blitz and yet again in the 1996 Manchester bombing. Since then it's become a celebrated theatre in the round.

Little Boxes

Unusual view of Manchester's Beetham Tower, shows how no matter how much we pay for our homes, they're all just boxes. Great printed onto my Mega Size Aluminium Dibond board - Upto 1.6 metres long.

The Picture Says It All!

The image says it all - along with the famous Tony Wilson Quote: THIS IS MANCHESTER - WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY HERE. No one else has or will do it like 'Manchester'.

The railway arches are wonderful, and the canal a delight. This section of canal leading to the Gay Quarter in the city centre is part of many links into the Castlefield Basin.

Baker Street

Long week-end spent in London. Tried to photograph too many places. This classic monochrome print of Bake Street Tube Station taken inbetween tube travellers.

Castlefield Walk

The Grocers’ Warehouse is regarded as the first true canal warehouse - the first warehouse to be built using internal canal arms with facilities to raise and lower goods between floors.

Out Of The Station

This tram thinks it 'Back to the Future' and looks like it'll disappear when the clock strikes 2:41. Marty says 'Buy before the lightening strikes'. Late afternoon stroll around Manchester.

Underneath the Arches

The arches leading to Manchester Central Library. This is another classic Manchester monochrome image which can be purchased as a Mega Wallart Print. That's right upto 1.6 metres long.

Looking to build on his success as a merchant, in 1914 John Swift built a four-storey showroom – a towering monument to all things fruity. Beautifull building within the Northern Quarter.

Withy Grove Store

The shop itself is one of those oddities. It’s basically a safe shop that time forgot, one that is seemingly never open, has no customers and hasn’t had a lick of paint in about 50 years.

Salford Pyramid

Once again the Imperial War Museum North produces visually detailed imagery. Who says Salford has no pyramids, may need to jump on that camel  just to find some sand.

Manchester City Treble Winners

This mural appeared in the Northern Quarter just after Manchester City acheived the Domestic Treble. Mural gone 1 week later. Even great graffiti highlighting Manchesters sporting events get the 'Red Card'

Imperial War Museum

A truely unusual aspect on the Imperial War Museum North building. Strong geometric lines, giving an appearence of a large whale, mouth open approaching. Well thats how I see it. What about you?

There are not many cities in the UK  when the rains can lift up the spirit. Manchester is one of them. Manchester Central Library with its curved exterior/interior and domed roof stands out whatever the weather.

Manchester's American Diner dining experiece at Debenhams, 2016. The diner is no longer there. Taken one winters evening 2015 whilst walking around Manchester.

Speed of Light

Trams move fast in Manchester. When you're on one you don't realise how fast they are, just a blur to pedestrians. Star Trek® (CBS Studios Inc).warp factor speed could not keep up with this tram.

Beetham Tower

Beetham Tower in Manchester, is the highest building in Manchester to date, the tallest residential building in Europe and the 7th tallest building in England. But the city is still building.
