Our current Exhibition for the back gallery is 9 images by artist Oliver East http://www.olivereast.art

“Like many Manchester residents, I had become frustrated by the rubbish and fly-tipping problem, and felt, as a community, we had become complicit in a conspiracy of blindness to the issue. By painting rubbish in vivid colours, it makes it impossible to ignore, and forces you to question what are you doing about it? For the past year I have combined illustration with sculptural and architectural approaches to instigate conversations about how we treat public and shared space. Working in abused spaces, the work, and the process (often for many hours across a number of days) creates memories in the viewer, turning neglected spaces into dynamic places.”
