About

Iconic street artist Smug, has created a spectacular large-scale new mural inspired by Carl Jung’s famous description of Liverpool’s ‘Pool of Life’, and the inspiration of this on one of the oldest and most creative neighbourhoods that surrounds it, the Cavern Quarter.

The mural has been co-commissioned by Culture Liverpool and Liverpool BID Company on behalf of the Beatles Legacy Group to explore the extraordinary history of this area, from the global music explosion it defined in the 60s to it becoming the centre of Liverpool’s ground-breaking and culturally defining counterculture of the ‘70s and ‘80s.

The mural by Glasgow based artist Sam Bates aka Smug, hints at the area’s layered history drawing on the well-known names like Erics and The Cavern which draw tourists from across the world, but also add greater depth in exposing the layers of history, architecture, commerce and trade which made up Jung’s ‘Pool of Life’.
