A young Gwynedd artist has been appointed to lead the “Hunan / Self” project – a community artistic project inspired by Gwynedd’s history, and the museum collections at Storiel in Bangor.

Llŷr Erddyn Davies, from Caernarfon will start by engaging with the children and young people from various communities throughout the county. People will be able to provide feedback by filling questionnaires, along with attending events held at Storiel and other locations throughout Gwynedd. The project aims to create a piece of art, which will be located outside Storiel during 2018.

Since graduating in Fine Arts (B.A Hons) in 2014 from Falmouth University, Llŷr has continued to work as a mixed medium artist in Caernarfon. He is part of the CARN network, and was one of the resident artists of STAMP: Island site, Caernarfon as part of Ideas, People and Places regeneration project.

Llŷr said: “I’m very pleased to accept this opportunity, and I look forward to being able to work together with Storiel, Gwynedd Communities and History to create a piece of art that will be displayed publicly.”

Councillor Craig ab Iago, Gwynedd Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture said:

“We are very pleased to see an enthusiastic young artist being appointed in this post. Llŷr’s work will involve working with residents to create a special piece of art that will be inspired by history, and the collections in the museum at Storiel, along with various satellites around the county.

“We are very fortunate that we have so much home-grown talent in this field. I look forward to seeing the work commence, with the final artwork being exhibited at Storiel for everyone to enjoy.”

More information will be available on the Storiel Facebook page.
