The Ulster Brewer / Barrel Man By Ross Wilson (Lanyon Place, near Waterfront Hall)

This representation of a cooper on his barrel was commissioned by Bass Ireland to celebrate their 100th anniversary of brewing in Belfast. It marks the important role the Ulster Brewery, its people and brands have played in the community over 100 years.

Ross Wilson graduated with a first-class honours degree in Fine Art from the University of Ulster and received his masters from the prestigious Chelsea School of Art, London.

He has had many solo exhibitions and has been included in group exhibitions worldwide. In 1998, his bronze sculpture of CS Lewis was placed at the Hollywood Arches, Belfast.
