Days A Week at the Bluecoat’
The Liverpool Portraiture project emerged from Axel
Hoeptner’s well established role as a portraitist of Cologne
artists. About three years ago, when contemplating the links between
artists from Cologne and Liverpool in the company, amongst others,
of Juergen Kisters, Axel at one point, very spontaneously, said
‘why don’t I make portraits of Liverpool artists, just
as have been doing here, in Cologne, for many years now?'
