Mad For Art initiated in Middleton, Manchester in 2017, initially as a hobby. We used to spend our spare time photographing historic sites, buildings and events in and around Manchester. We are always looking for something different to the main stream options, mainly drawn to vintage styles, whether it be art work or decor.
We’ve always been interested in art in various forms and after comprehensive research, we decided to set up the business. We realised that there is a demand for the genres we stock in our shop on the first floor of Afflecks. We stock a wide variety or prints from, vintage films & screen icons to perfume adverts, from music legends to vintage travel & entertainment, and classic food advertisements to classic cars. We also realised that there was a market for contemporary styles such as Banksy, Dan Avenell, Michael Kosolov, Fred Birchal etc and choosing the iconic Afflecks as the ideal location.We plan soon to add new comprehensive selection of ‘Past Manchester’ to our range.

Established since 1993 in the legendary Affleck’s in Manchester’s trendy Northern Quarter, Panic grew out of Splash Posters, which fed the Manchester music scene with posters and shirts from the 80’s Smiths through Madchester’s Happy Mondays, Stone Roses & Inspiral Carpets and then onto Oasis.
Panic offers an unrivalled range of Rock, Pop, Punk, Metal, Indie, Rap and other music posters as well as a huge range of Film, TV, Cult, Personality, Sport, Art, Humorous & Lifestyle poster titles. We offer an alternative to the high street covering not only the mainstream, but also niche markets and more obscure, but nevertheless demanded angles.
We get customers visiting from all over the country (and the world) to see our unparallelled range of posters and now we have launched our internet store to save you the trouble of travelling, by delivering our products to your door.
Over the years celebrity customers have included: Danny from McFly, Geri from The Spice Girls, Anna Friel, Ian Brown, Tony Wilson, The Murderdolls, Debbie Harry, Alice Cooper, Pussycat Dolls, David Beckham, Oasis, Ole Gunnar Solskjær and the guitar playing legend that is Captain Sensible from The Damned. We are even mentioned by Gomez in their song Whippin’ Piccadilly.
Between us we have more experience in the poster business than we care to be reminded of, and so can ensure we offer the best, most up to date, eclectic and comprehensive selection of posters. Due to the time we have been in business we also have a huge catalogue of collectable, rare and hard to find posters. We have survived Madchester with the Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, Hacienda et al and we still have some of the posters to prove it! We have also seen the Britpop come and go with Oasis, Blur etc.
Over the years we have expanded our product range from just posters to include badges, flags, belts, buckles, patches and more. We will be bringing these products online as quickly as we can.
