In the shadow of Stevenson Square, where the Suffragettes once gathered defiant over 100 years ago, ‘Serenity’ is the first of the street art convention’s Tributes to Hope.
This tribute is in gratitude to all women that stand against injustice. The artwork recognises their strength, resolve and dignity, a testimony to what they have endured and still endure, to make the world a better place, for all of us.
‘Serenity’ is the production of the female and male partnership SNIK. With over a decade’s experience painting walls they have established themselves as one of the most progressive stencil artists of the moment. Their bold aesthetic is characterised by frozen scenes of dynamic action often at impressive scale.
‘Serenity’ can be seen on Lever Street, behind the Cow Hallow Hotel, just off Stevenson Square, The Northern Quarter, Manchester, M1 1BE.
Cities of Hope would like to thank Montana Spray Paint, Facelift (www.facelift.co.uk), The International Powered Access Federation (www.ipaf.org), The Cow Hallow Hotel and all volunteers and partners for their generous support.
