I was first introduced to Paintsayer in the spring of 2018 when the NQ Gallery had a weeks pop up at Affleck's Sister Location Hatch with Stories By Afflecks. We were very excited to be at Manchesters newest and coolest location on Oxford Road located under the Mancunian Way. Little did we know we would be making a new friend and eventually new memeber of the NQ Gallery. We were also invited to join them at their first MCR Art Jam in the summer organised by Paintsayers himself.
Later that year Paintsayer joined the NQ Creatives and is now is a key characher in the gallery. As an added bonus Lee takes part in live Art Battles! He won 2 of them and also gained a place in the grand final "Art Battle MCR- Battle Royale" at the Albert Hall, Manchester. We are a very lucky gallery - You can find him at many of our NQ events painting live.
This summer he joined us at the amazing Manchester event called Bee In The City - Big Weekender celebrating the Manchester Bee Trail. This is where he created his the Mechanical Bee live.
Lees most recent event with us was at Afflecks After Dark in November 2018 where he created live a here in the gallery in Afflecks. His inspiration came from a suggestion on Instagram - Manchester Music Hacienda inspired Heart using only posca pens.
We have named the piece we have named Heart and Soul. The final piece is on canvas and is 16"x 24" and it's a unique one off piece.
We would like to Auction- Heart & Soul off for charity and we have chosen a charity very close to our hearts. We would like all proceeds to go to The Francis House Childrens Hospice in Didsbury Manchester. We are taking bids now - the starting bid was £50!
