This month’s featured artist at the People’s Gallery is 44-year-old Karl Elphick.

Despite sketching and drawing from an early age, Karl didn’t start painting until later on in life. He graduated from MMU’s Manchester School of Art with a Fine Art degree in 2007 and has since gone on to put on shows to display his work.

Karl’s exhibition is on display all this month. He’s grateful to the People’s Gallery for giving him the opportunity to showcase his work.

He said: “Galleries like this are vital because as a painter you want to be able to see your work. To have a place where you can display it and other people can see it is really important. I’m from Stockport and we don’t have anything like this. I’ve travelled a long way to come here but it’s well worth it.”

The People’s Gallery on Melbourne Street is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10.30am-3.30pm.
