In the normal scheme of things, art galleries are where you go to see paintings. However, in the fantastic work of the Singh Twins (deserved winners of the recent Liverpool Art Prize People’s Award), you can look at art galleries in paintings instead.

You may remember that last year I spotted some of our venues in their painting ‘Liverpool 800′ when it went on display at St George’s Hall. The talented sisters have just unveiled a new painting, ‘Art Matters: The Pool of Life’ to celebrate Liverpool’s Capital of Culture year. As always, the picture is bursting with life, featuring a plethora of Liverpool people and landmarks infused with the vibrant colours of the traditional Indian miniature style of painting.

There’s way too much detail to cram into a tiny space like this, but you can just about make out in this image that the Walker Art Gallery has made an appearance once again, half way down on the right hand side. It’s being visited by the blue time-travelling taxi from the Magical History Tour exhibition, which appears to be driven by an escapee from World Museums Liverpool’s Bug House. There’s even a poster advertising the upcoming exhibition The Beat Goes On (thanks for the publicity ladies!)
