MancMade are big fans of his work and were beyond chuffed when Stephen offered his unique take on Manchester’s iconic Cornerhouse (below) as a prize in this giveaway.
Although I was never a regular visitor to the Cornerhouse it was a part my Manchester “cultural comfort blanket” back in the 80’s and early 90’s. A venue that offered me the chance to experience a little bit of culture and the odd foreign film, whilst still being near enough to the Peveril of the Peak that I could sink a few pints of Guiness in there before getting the bus home.
Although it was a little poncey, (Yes; It was!!) I always felt the Cornerhouse still had uniquely Mancunian DNA at its core and I did feel a real tinge of sadness when it closed its doors for the last time in 2015.
Stephen’s print reminds me of a time when my world was getting bigger and the Guinness was a lot cheaper and every time I look at it I can’t help but get a big fat smile on my face.
Stephen’s Cornerhouse art print measures 500mm x 400mm and will be supplied unframed. It will be signed by Stephen.
