ROAD Studios is an artist led organisation that has served as a creative hub within the heart of Liverpool since 2012. The studio aims to act as a base for individual creative practice, whilst actively cultivating a supportive artistic network that nurtures the growth and development of its members.
As an established community, ROADies past and present are meticulously interwoven within the Liverpool art scene. Believing in a non-insular approach, ROAD acts as a gateway for broader collaborative projects and connections, instigating opportunities for both internal and external artists to benefit from their platform.
We think that by facilitating in the strength and sustainability of an artist’s foundations, the further down the road their journey will take them. Honestly, we are like the M6 services of art studios.

Mothman Wanders Iceland by Tony Knox
Legend of Mothman During my primary research of ‘MothMan’, I have discovered his legend to go back further than my own recent sighting. My objectives are to try to understand this phenomenon and prove his actual existence.
For the past 10 years, this exhibition has been a highlight of the Culture Warrington calendar; a time where we can celebrate the incredible artistic talent our town and the region has to offer.
Each year, leading artists from across the North West compete in this annual competition to win a career changing prize and to present their work in this prestigious exhibition.
We’re thrilled to welcome on board 2018 winner Marie Jones as our guest curator. Marie has been working alongside Culture Warrington staff to change the flavour of the exhibition by broadening the submissions boundary, increasing the number of prizes, enlisting the support of a fantastic panel of judges and welcoming submissions from across all art forms.

ROAD studios Associate Artist Kenneth J O’Hare aged 68 passed away after a long battle with cancer.
Born in Liverpool on 9th April 1952- 11th Aug 2020.
His last show Revolving Doors presented by ROAD Studios at West Kirby Arts Centre, Wirral. 22 Feb– 15 June 2020.
Ken O’Hare studied a BA Hons in Fine Art at John Moores University 1996-1999 then went on to work at the first Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art as part of the Voluntary team setting up the show in Exchange flags then taking the role as a gallery assistant.
Then in 2000 – 2002, he was part of the European Funded Draw lab that made artist in residents in ST. Helens College, this time helped him define his painting styles to a higher level he also had a solo show in Liverpool independents Biannual at George Henry Lee in Oct 2018. He was a teacher this quiet man with a warm nature is survived by His Twin Brother Brian O’Hare.
Ken O’Hare depicted the city by studying the effects of light on glass, how light is reflected or absorbed. Through my art I am endeavouring to capture the city, its geometric forms and space within, with its facades of glass and geometric shapes, that appear to suspend or fall from the sky, reflecting and absorbing energy and light. In my work, each frame of glass contains a minimalist image in three-dimensional space, each frame harmonising with its neighbour, collectively forming a final painting, which I hope gives the viewer a meditative and spiritual experience.
Painting it again kept me aware of what I left behind, With every passing day, every new project or assignment is undertaken, my life in Liverpool grew to be as one instant and ecstatic; my relationship with space and my time in the city became compassionate, my pain dissipated and I grew more in touch with the people all around; their pain, often silently ignored, gave me a new direction. The universe was born from a single point, I believe we still exist within a relatively finite point in an infinite expense outside it.
