Jersey is a picture of a barbershop shop in Jamaica. The artist, Hurvin Anderson, uses a three stage method when he makes his artworks – first he takes photos of something, next he makes a collage out of these images, and then he paints a picture based on it.
You can see this picture in Tate Liverpool until April 2013, in the exhibition called Thresholds. The artist has used bits of this picture in some of his other paintings too, look out and see if you can spot them!
Here are some things to think about when you write your story: why is the hairdresser’s deserted? Where has everyone gone? The multi-coloured posters on the wall are blank – could the images have run straight off them?
