Pop culture portrait artist Nathan Wyburn drew large crowds in Lytham’s Clifton Square as he took to canvas to create a unique portrait of the ‘Hello’ singer using locally sourced sand.

Cardiff-based Nathan took the trip to create the artwork ahead of Lionel headlining at Lytham Festival on Saturday, July 1.

Speaking about his creation, Nathan said: “Lionel is an absolute icon so to be able to bring him to Lytham a few weeks ahead of this year’s festival was something I really wanted to do.

“Using sand from the Ribble estuary was the obvious choice for this to celebrate Lytham’s location on the coast and I am really pleased with the final piece and the reaction from people while I was working.”
