A series of oil paintings from the Renaissance period, painted onto a photo of the Cornbrook tram stop in Manchester that was taken on the day the shops reopened after the Covid-19 pandemic. This piece captures a moment in modern society showing the effects that the pandemic had on our day-to-day lives, which has been contrasted with the romanticism of the Renaissance and Pre-Raphaelite periods.

The 'Manchester Renaissance' also gained the attention of the Royal Academy of Arts, with the piece being selected to be featured in the Young Artists Summer Show in 2022.

This piece features figures from Jan Van Eyck's 'Alforni Portrait', John William Waterhouse's 'Lamia', 'Farmer's Daughter' by John Everett Millais and the famous 'Birth of Venus' by Botticelli. Elements of Covid-19 still linger, creating a parallel between the Renaissance of the 1400s, where light was found after the Dark Ages, and the modern Renaissance of today where we have freedom again.

This piece measures 2 metres by 1m and is oil painted onto printed canvas.
