WESTGARTH MURAL

Yesterday, while driving to go to a fête, we came across this mural in Roberts St, Westgarth. It is in quite an obscure location, where not many people would find it. It is painted on a large roller door and the ribbed metal surface adds another dimension to the work.

The mural is by Sam King, an emerging British artist working within the mediums painting, murals, illustration and installation. His work fuses figuration with futurism and Eastern influence. Sam King's website can be found here.

  4. That's beautiful. I hope the mural gets hung in a museum or elsewhere should the building get demolished.

  6. Hi Nick, this mural is a great find. The ripple of the door does give this painting more drama. The profile image is realistic and so well done. Thank you for some great photos and share for Blue Monday.

    I also appreciate your very lovely comment on my post.
    Have a great week .
