AN ARTIST is hosting a month-long exhibition at a Wirral venue.

Abstract artist Daniel Meakin is hosting his work at Start Yard in Birkenhead from April 26 until May 29.

Daniel has been selling his work internationally for more than 30 years, having ran a gallery in Barcelona and having exhibited and received numerous commissions throughout Europe, the U.S and Australia, the acclaimed artist now resides in Wirral and will display some of his finest work at Start Yard.

Daniel said: “I lived in Barcelona for many years after being placed there as part of my Masters Degree. I ran a gallery there and hosted countless exhibitions.

“One of the things I’d do over there is collect old furniture people discarded and turn them into wonderful pieces of art as a live performance in exhibitions and festivals.

“People loved it so I’m really looking forward to doing this in Wirral.”

If Walls Could Talk will feature up to 25 of his abstract landscape masterpieces, both for viewing enjoyment and for sale.

The exhibition will be open Monday-Thursday 9am-4pm and Friday 9am-8pm. Meanwhile, the launch event on Friday April 27 will see Daniel transform a piece of old furniture into a work of art live in front of the audience.

Daniel added: “I moved to West Kirby in 2022 and instantly fell in love with the area.

“Whilst I mostly sell commissions internationally, my local exhibitions have been really well received and have showcased my work at West Kirby Arts Centre, The Everyman Theatre, Wirral Open Studios and Dot Art.

“The Start Yard exhibition will be particularly special as I’m integrating my love of furniture restoration at the launch event.”

Daniel’s art has sold to avid collectors all over the world, including investment tycoon JP Morgan. In this exciting month-long exhibition, he has saved some of his very best work for art lovers of Wirral to enjoy in the creative space of Start Yard.

Daniel said: “I am influenced by artists such as Antoni Tapies and Robert Rauschenberg for their use of found materials, textures and collage, and painters such as David Hockney and Friedensreich Hundertwasser for their use of colour and form.

“My work is very bright and colourful — portraying urban landscapes and industrial settings in fresh, vibrant ways.”
