Liz West and Graham & Brown

Established by two friends, Harold Graham and Henry Brown, in 1946 despite a severe shortage of paper during the war, Graham & Brown is now run by the third generation of the founders’ descendants as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of wall coverings, including wall paper and wall art products. The Blackburn-based company will work with Manchester-based artist, Liz West, whose breathtaking use of colour and light has seen the creation of unforgettable, immersive works of art for both gallery settings and the public realm. In her residency, West is presented with the breadth of printing and production facilities at the manufacturer’s technologically-advanced factory, a diverse heritage of materials as well as an enthusiastic and committed local workforce.
