Liverpool Lightnight has now been and gone, and what a night it was. Celebrated across the city including here in the Baltic Triangle (home of B&G), venues across the city opening their doors and staying up late to party. Being based in the heart of the triangle we had to opportunity to see a lot of what the Baltic had to offer, from a music jam session in Unit 51 to a live drawing project in the Black Lodge it was great to see all the different communities come together.
For Lightnight this year we decided to open our studio up for an illustrator to come in and collaborate on creating a large scale illustration on our studio window. We were contacted by a creative duo from Leeds called Buttercrumble. Wanting to capture the buzz of the Baltic, Buttercrumble won the opportunity with their innovative large scale, glow in the dark mural that encapsulated all the little quirks and neighbours that make up the Baltic Triangle.
The illustration took around 4 hours to complete, and through out that time we had some lovely passer by’s stop to come in to have a chat. It was interesting to see the variety of people the Baltic had attracted, a real mix of the older generation and younger generation.
We’re already looking forward to what Liverpool Lightnight 2018 has to offer.
