About

St.Helens is a former mining town located in the north west of England, and is also my home town.

For this project I designed a mural which told a story. I instantly knew I wanted to tell the story of St.Helens. It's a town which most of the people I had met at this point, after leaving the town, didn’t know about. 

I took quotes of miners who worked in the mines, as well as doing portraits of them using my own illustrative style, a mix of monochromatic portraits and Japanese Manga.

I wanted the mural to be located at a local train station where it would be seen by people on the train passing by the station as well as being located near multiple mines which were in the area.
