By Sarah Connell
This beautiful painting by local artist Sarah Connell shows off Canal street, the beating heart of Manchester's gay village.
Dramatically lit under a bright blue sky, the balance of light and dark creates a striking visual contrast.
Lining the street, a row of rainbow flags - symbolic of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer pride, (LGBTQIA+) draw the eye into the distance.
Located just south of Chinatown, the Village is both party central and a living piece of social history - proof that Manchester is one of the world's leading gay-friendly cities.
Sarah Connell is a Manchester based artist who describes her artwork as focusing on light, atmosphere and colour. Through her work, she captures many of Manchester's most iconic scenes and landmarks. Her artworks make the perfect addition to anyone's home, whether based in Manchester or further afield.
