AN artist is delighted to have had his work exhibited in his home town.

Mikey Jones, 31, had some of his work on show at the Bank Street Social coffee shop in Wrexham, on Thursday, December 6.

Wrexham Mayor, Andy Williams, was among those who attended the exhibition.

Mikey said: “It was an amazing experience to have it up in a cool venue like Bank Street Social. We really reached out to an audience who we don’t normally reach out to with it being the Victorian Markets which was really busy.”

Andy Gallanders, Bank Street Social owner, said: “Mikey Jones is an incredible artist and I have walls so why not? We are proud to support Wrexham from spoken word, musicians, art to stocking Wonders of Wrexham calendars.”

He added: “The event was a perfect way to continue what was a very busy day with the Victorian Market which again was incredible for town footfall.”

The exhibition concludes a fantastic 12 months for the Wrexham artist, who was approached to create two pieces of art for the Mayor’s office earlier in the year.

He added: “Andy Williams is a keen artist himself, and it turned out that he was looking for a couple of artists to put their work up in the office to bring it forward to the 21st Century. I was asked to paint two iconic scenes in Wrexham, and naturally I chose St Giles and the aqueducts, which are a big part of our industrial heritage. It was great fun and a real honour, hopefully they’re up there for years to come.”

Mikey has now done over 100 exhibitions since choosing to become an artist a decade ago while he was studying architecture at Bristol University.
