Gordon Young is a visual artist
who focuses on creating art for the public domain. His work ranges from sculptures to typographic pavements for places as disrelated as government headquarters and village squares. The common denominator for all projects is the basis of relevance to the surroundings.



The idea behind this was to encourage people to visit the lesser known parts of Hull. Inspired by labels from fish crates found on the pavement, The Hull City Trail or Fish Pavement is an A-Z of sea life from anchovy to zander. Examples include flounders at bus stops, monk fish outside Blackfriars Gate, plaice in the market place and a granite shark outside Barclays Bank.

In collaboration with:
Martin Bellwood, Russell Coleman, Ian Cooper, Brian Fell and Tony Slater.
