By Michael Gutteridge
Gutteridge masterfully captures the atmosphere of a boozy evening, where friends and family gather to enjoy a few pints. The mosaic of scattered tables, distorted perspective and dramatic skyline elevate this feeling creating a joyful and evocative painting.
Shambles Square is a historic square situated right next to Manchester Cathedral, and is home to four main pubs: Crown & Anchor, The Old Wellington, Sinclairs Oyster Bar, and The Mitre Hotel. The term "shambles" comes from the name of the street where butchers would slaughter and sell meat. The Old Wellington is one of the only surviving Tudor buildings in Manchester city centre.
Gutteridge’s paintings possess a sensual vibrancy achieved through distortions of form and colour, lively brushwork, and a playful skewing of perspective. His work has been used in a promotional capacity by Marketing Manchester, Lancaster University, Manchester University, and in literary and music media as book jackets and in a pop video. Michael has also been featured in newspapers, magazines, television, BBC online and radio and his paintings are held in private collections all over the world.
