City hotel unveils huge new Liverpool FC mural fans will love

A new city hotel has unveiled the latest LFC mural to be painted in Liverpool.

The huge artwork is being crafted on the side of The Arc Hotel, in Anfield, that opened last week.

Mural painters Murwalls are in charge of the massive commission and have made great progress since Monday.

In a unique twist, the creators are making the mural up of some of Liverpool’s greatest legends from past and present teams.

These include, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler, current defender Virgil van Dijk and Kenny Dalglish.

Many people have already begun commenting on the artwork that is likely to be completed in the coming days.

On Facebook, The Arc Hotel are inviting fans down to see the work being carried out and to try out their new bar.

After welcoming their first guests last weekend, staff are keen to get more people through the doors.

They posted: “Murwalls have started work on our Liverpool legends Mural at the side of the hotel.

“Come down and take a look and enjoy some of our mouth watering locally sourced food and drink offerings from Crosby Coffee Cake Hole Liverpool and Satter bake.”

Responding to pictures and video of the artwork being done, fans have already described it as “amazing” and “brilliant”.

Earlier this month Paul Curtis, best known for his painting of the Liver Bird wings in the Baltic, created a stunning mural on Old Barn Road.

The mural shows Jordan Henderson holding up the Premier League trophy in triumph with a huge grin on his face.

Featured beside Henderson is former captain Alan Hansen, pictured holding the trophy when the team last won the league in 1990.

The artwork is located just a short walk away from the stadium and has already gained a lot of attention from fans.

In June, a mural of a laughing Jurgen Klopp popped up on Jamaica Street.
