(S)pray For Justice – Part 2

17 Apr

On the 21st of February we posted a report on GECKO’s tribute to the 96 victims of the Hillsborough Disaster. If you didn’t catch it, read it here.

It is with heart felt congratulations we can announce that the (S)pray for justice exhibition found a new home in the City of Liverpool, in the prestigeous Museum Of Liverpool. Now in its rightful place, an opening event was held to which the families of the 96 victims were invited and is now open for the people of Liverpool to come and understand more about the impact of the Hillsborough disaster.

GECKO never set out to gain any repute or fame from his tribute, we feel it is for this reason that he deserves every bit of respect offered to him for his selfless efforts. In his own words, ” For me, art is not about personal gain. It is about sharing and spreading a little joy. I hope this work, though very poignant, is somewhat uplifting.”

It is evidence of the power of art to transcend all cultural barriers that a Manchester Graffiti Artist, can have such an affect on the City of Liverpool and families of the 96 victims of Hillsborough.
