Art in Motion is your chance to enjoy art as you navigate the city of Liverpool. A new collaboration between Liverpool Biennial and Liverpool BID Company, in 2020 three artists are producing work inspired by the city's iconic Coat of Arms. The first artist to be commissioned is Gordon Cheung whose works will appear in unexpected locations across the Commercial District, inviting visitors and commuters to collect them within the fabric of everyday life.
A painter whose work explores themes of urban environment and history, Cheung has responded to Liverpool’s storied past and dynamic present by creating a series of ‘glitch’ based artworks inspired by the flowers and birds which appear in the Liverpool Coat of Arms.
From 20 January 2020, look out for Cheung’s artworks for a limited time on Arriva bus tickets, inside their buses and on takeaway coffee cups at the following local businesses:
Baby E Coffee & Deli • Bloom & Bean • Bold Street Coffee • Cafe Lucaya • Espresso Café (at Bluecoat) • Esquires Coffee • Hemingway’s Café • The Red Berry Club • Rococo Coffee House • Rope & Twines • Thoughtfully Café
The artworks will appear on Arriva bus routes 26 and 27, which travel through the Commercial District.
A number of other exciting outlets and locations will gradually be unveiled across the city over the course of the project.
