A Preston artist has brought Preston’s history to life in film from its origins as ‘Priest Town’ to the modern city it is today to celebrate the 2012 Guild.
Local artist, Dave Robinson, 32, painstakingly created the film to present the city’s history using art styles such as early renaissance, modern art and 21st century contemporary art. The film will depict Preston’s growth through the centuries, from its origins being granted its Royal Charter by King Henry II, through to the medieval Guild celebrations and Richard Arkwright’s spinning jenny.
It also showcases the creation of Preston North End in 1888 and member of the Suffragette movement, Edith Rigby. Included in the film is Preston’s industrial heritage which has been represented in the style of famous painter LS Lowry up to this year’s Guild in the 21st century.
