POCKLINGTON’S Acorn Gallery is exhibiting the debut collection of fine art painted by Neil Buchanan, the creator, artist, producer and presenter behind the two times BAFTA award-winning TV sensation Art Attack.
Entitled Neil Buchanan’s HOPE STREET, the series of 12 limited edition prints depict the story of childhood and is a nostalgic and evocative collection of art inspired by Neil’s childhood memories growing up in Liverpool in the early 1960s.
The launch of Buchanan’s HOPE STREET came after several years away from the TV cameras, during which time the talented, self-taught artist returned to his art studio to produce this startlingly beautiful collection of paintings, with each limited edition print personally signed by the former star of Art Attack.
He said: “I want to take you on a special journey. This voyage doesn’t involve a long car ride or train trip, because my HOPE STREET is not a place, it’s a state of mind ... and it’s a nice place to be.
“When I went out to play, I walked down my very own HOPE STREET every day with the gift that only children truly possess in abundant measure – imagination.”
Neil continued: “I’m a sucker for nostalgia and I hope the paintings of my HOPE STREET will bring memories of your own childhood flooding back.”
