Lambananas

Claire has painted three lambananas for projects run by Wild in Art. The initial project, 'Go Superlambananas', was a major Public Art event involving the community in Liverpool in 2008, showcasing the creativity of the city in its year as European Capital of Culture. Subsequently the Liverpool City Council commissioned eight Superlambananas for permanent display in the City as part of the legacy of Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture in 2008

As part of the legacy of Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture in 2008, Liverpool City Council commissioned eight Superlambananas for permanent display in the City. Claire was commissioned to paint 'Year of 08', inspired by the winning design of Kath Jackson in the Liverpool Echo's 'Design a Superlambanana' competition. The Lambanana is painted in he style of Gustav Klimt, and illustrates some of the major events of a remarkable year.

This was Claire's own design, portraying a map of the South Liverpool district of Allerton and the surrounding area, illustrating some of the landmarks. It celebrates Allerton's contribution to Liverpool's achievements and heritage, including Neolithic Stones (Calderstones), a thousand year old oak tree (The Allerton Oak) and the vast Beatle's legacy.

For this Lambanana Claire worked with 200 children at Trinity Catholic Primary School in North Liverpool. The children all drew designs, some of which were incorporated into the final design which they painted.
