Port Sunlight Village Trust commissioned Tod Hanson in Spring 2019 as part of the Meeting Point programme. Tod will be working with the trust to produce an artwork that will respond to their site and history, to open in Summer 2020.

Tod Hanson said:

“I’m thrilled and excited to have the opportunity to be working with Port Sunlight Village Trust. Fantastical architecture on psychedelic daisy-covered lawns. The village is the frothy topping of a gigantic soap factory and its pop graphic commercialism.”

The Artist

Tod Hanson is an artist based in London and Berwick upon Tweed. Growing up, Tod’s parents were involved in the theatre with costume and scenery. After studying graphic design and public art, Tod went on to do large scale projects for Greenpeace UK and decorating nightclub interiors. Tod now combines these formative influences to explore nature, technology and mapping, interweaving landscape, architecture and historic design style, into large scale immersive installations and public artworks. A world overamplified and speeding up.
