Bournville, the home of chocolate, where the Cadbury factory relied on the canal system to deliver its milk and the railway to deliver its cocoa to them. This beautiful vintage transport wall sign is by artist Kevin Walsh. Our canal barge and steam train sign takes you back in time to a slower pace of lifestyle. A great gift for canal enthusiasts, steam railway fans and chocolate lovers! This nostalgic wall art is a lovely decorator's piece for a hallway, office/study, lounge, dining room or themed bar.
Born in Yorkshire in 1950, he studied illustration at Wakefield College of Art. Kevin developed an early reputation for accurate technical paintings, historical detail combined with an ability to capture the warmth and atmosphere of his subjects, these are the hallmarks of this remarkably accomplished artist. He travels many miles to research his paintings and spends countless hours sketching before committing the final composition to canvas.
