By Kevin Austin
Welcome to the ongoing project and passion of self-taught artist Kevin Austin, who grew up in Liverpool, in the same area and during the same time as the Beatles.
Initially inspired by the song, 'Strawberry Fields Forever' the artworks have developed into many evocative scenes of life in Liverpool, from early post-war years to present day.
Strawberry Fields Art is a nostalgic collection, which is retrospectively presented as original oil paintings, photographs, stories and anecdotes.
"With all of my paintings I've tried to tell an instantly recognisable, but important story. My aim is to transport the viewer to that time and place, complete with accurate detail. I also try to capture scenes with no pictorial records." - Kevin Austin
