I have driven past this piece by Deamze many, many times, but never been able to stop and photograph it. At last I managed to do just that, but in the meantime I think the piece has faded a little. It has been exposed to the elements and has suffered from being on the kerbside of a busy street.
The piece is outside the Black Swan in Stapleton Road and is a bit of a landmark. Here we find then trademark character and writing work so typical of the endless skill of this artist. I’m not too sure who the character is, but something from the depths of my memory is saying ‘wally gator’. Of course the mind is a fickle beast and I may have this completely wrong. A nice piece.
