Lillian Bilocca 1928 – 1988

I have a hectic start to the year with my day job of commercial photography which unfortunately has left me little time to keep my blog up-to-date. However now the summer is approaching and East Yorkshire  bursts back into life I hope to add blog posts on a regular basis so watch this space.

The BBC TV ‘One Show’ commissioned a wall mural to celebrate the life of safety campaigner of the trawling industry Lillian Bilocca, I had a walk down into the city on Saturday afternoon to see it in the flesh and a very impressive artwork it is. I have also seen this article on the Hull Daily Mail website indicating that if the funding can be found a further three murals will be commissioned in their heart of the fishing community on Hessle Road, tying nicely with Hull’s year in the spotlight being City of Culture 2017.
