To help celebrate the 50th anniversary of ITV’s Coronation Street soap opera, Central Station (the Manchester art and design studio that created bold, colourful painted artork for the likes of The Happy Mondays and Factory Records in the late 80s and early 90s) has created 25 portraits of well known ‘Corrie’ characters…
Central Station told us: “We are all massive Corrie fans, the long list of colourful characters that have lived on the street over the past 50 years, not only relate to us as people, but have come along at times that reflect the social and cultural dynamics of the world around us. It has been brilliant putting our stamp on the national treasure that is Corrie.”
The paintings will show at the Richard Goodall Gallery in Manchester’s Northern Quarter from December 2 – January 15.
