Writer and Arts critic voices his opinion on TLMP

Belfast writer Tom Paulin confirmed his strong support for the Liverpool Mural Project in an email today. Mr Paulin is a well respected literary critic and arts reviewer who is known as much for his appearances on the likes of The Late Show and the Newsnight Review as for his excellent literary talent.

Tom who was born in Leeds but moved to Belfast as a child with his parents fully understands the significance of the mural artists from two different communities in Northern Ireland working together. He had the following to say about The Liverpool Mural Project's plans for Liverpool's 2008 European Cultural Celebrations.

The two traditions - the Orange and the Green - have never come together in this way before. These mural painters are distinctive and gifted artists indeed. Your project has my full support.
