Mark Kennedy's mosaics to grace Afflecks again The famed mosaic artworks that once adorned Manchester’s alternative shopping emporium Afflecks are to return – with acclaimed Manc artist Mark Kennedy to create a host of new works piece by piece The famed mosaic artworks that once adorned Manchester’s alternative shopping emporium Afflecks are to return – with acclaimed Manc artist Mark Kennedy to create a host of new works piece by piece Mark’s mosaic masterpieces of city icons like music impressario Tony Wilson, footballer George Best and Smiths frontman Morrissey became a much-loved city landmark hung on the exterior of Afflecks – but when the site was taken over by developer Bruntwood in 2008 they were kept by the previous manager. But now Mark tells The Diary he has been commissioned to create a raft of new mosaics that will once again decorate the arches of the old building that corners a huge site off Oldham Street, Tib Street and Dale Street in the Northern Quarter. He says: “I suppose my artwork is Afflecks, that’s what I do, it’s what I’m known for. It has been my gallery for the past 12 years or so, so obviously I’m happy to be asked back.” The first, that depicts the famous On The Sixth Day God Created Man...Chester quote, will return this week on the Afflecks Arcade. And Mark, pictured here in his studio, is now hard at work on the second, an image of labrador Bruce, who the Black Dog Ballroom bar in the basement of Afflecks is named after. Mark then has plans to create new mosaics of Manc icons, including a special Factory Records piece, to commemorate the label’s late, great Tony Wilson, New Order manager Rob Gretton and legendary music producer Martin Hannett, among others More at https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/whats-on/film-and-tv/mark-kennedys-mosaics-to-grace-afflecks-851494
