Colourful and eye-catching window art now adorns the office of Sheffield Heeley MP Louise Haigh on Chesterfield Road in the heart of the constituency.
The artwork depicts landmarks from across Sheffield and the constituency, including rolling vistas from Meersbrook Park, Kelham Island steel museum, Forgemasters, the historic water tower near Graves Park, Bishops House and Beauchief Abbey. The cityscapes have all been designed by local artist Bryan John.
Bryan is an expressionist artist based in the city who takes his inspiration from the works of German expressionists. Bryan uses bold complementary colours to depict building landscapes to produce bold but harmonious cityscapes.
I’m so pleased with the new window art as they show our fantastic city in a colourful and positive light. There is so much to be positive about in our city and I’m pleased that we now have a permeant reminder for all to see. It’s so important that we display art in places that people are and that it’s accessible by all. That was the ethos behind these window displays, and they should be enjoyed and commented on by all.
I’ve had so many supportive comments from constituents and from people who have been walking past to say that they like the new window displays. I really hope they can help brighten people’s day and more people will stop and take note of the new windows.
“I’m so grateful to Bryan John for designing these brilliant landscapes of Sheffield so we can all be proud of our beautiful city.
Bryan John, said:
“I’m pleased that Louise chose me to design the window displays for her office and that I was able to take her brief and execute it in this way. I have produced cityscapes of Sheffield for the past five years, but this is the first time that my artwork has been displayed on windows.
“I’m hoping that many of the images that are displayed on the windows will feature in my next exhibition in the Gage Gallery next Summer.”
