Mayor's giant gift for Royal de Luxe

Allen Heron and Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson handing over the artwork to Jean Luc Courcoult from Royal de Luxe

A painting commissioned by Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson has been handed over to Royal de Luxe director Jean Luc Courcoult.  Liverpool born Allen Heron's work depicts the Giants sailing out of the City in in 2012 as part of the Sea Odyssey, which marked 100 years since the Titanic sank.   Allen and the Mayor handed the piece of art to Jean Luc during rehearsals for Memories of August 1914, which starts in Liverpool on Wednesday, 23 July 2014.   Mayor Joe Anderson said:- "Allen is a fantastic artist and I asked him to come up with a piece of work which the City could give to Jean Luc to thank him for the fabulous memories he left us with during Sea Odyssey.  It captures one of the many memorable moments which enchanted the City during 2012."  57 year old Allen has spent his working life in a range of roles from builder to community health worker, but has always been keen to pursue his ambition of working as an artist. He has been producing community art work for more than a decade, and has also spent a great deal of his private time working with and supporting children, young people and adults with learning difficulties using the medium of art.  His work covers a wide range of artistic styles from abstract to landscaping.   Allen said:- "I am passionate about painting and it was a real honour to be commissioned to paint this artwork on behalf of the Mayor.  I hope Jean Luc loves it as much as I do."
