Anchored by one of the Haçienda pillars and the Whitworth Street West road-sign on the left, this intricately detailed artwork features many subtle refences to the infamous nightclub and the wider Manchester music scene, remembering famous performance and inspirational nights, the Haçienda staff, the club’s signature design style as well as the key characters, musicians and bands who came to make the club “the most famous in the world” according to Newsweek in the 1990’s.
In celebrating the renown and respect in which The Haçienda’s scene is held, Justin’s artwork captures the energy, spirt and impact felt in that era as well as the considerable affection which remains for the club today, not only in Manchester and the UK, but all across the world.

Over recent years, Justin’s work has become much admired and increasingly high profile with his Manchester Haçienda Bee gaining him great attention as have his permanent mural at Printworks Manchester and his recent sold-out limited editions of Alan Turing and Emmeline Pankhurst. His artworks have raised over £50,000 for charities over the past eighteen months.
About “Retro5pect1ve” – Artwork, Peter Hook said: “I’ve been a fan of Justin’s work for a long time actually. He is a really nice young man and I was very impressed when he did The Hacienda Bee the other year. He has managed to capture the very essence of The Hacienda family and the altruism which has shaped the club, from when it opened to entertain Manchester in the Eighties to the heritage it commands today.”
Justin commented: “It’s a dream come true to work with The Haçienda and a genuine friend and hero of mine, Peter Hook, on this creative collaboration. The Haçienda still means so much to so many people and to be given the opportunity to capture a moment in time was one I could not pass up. My hope is that everyone that went to The Haçienda sees an element within the artwork that transports them back to the music, emotion and love that they experienced inside its unique space.”
