2342. L Dub (3)

I am a huge sucker for any street art featuring a chameleon because my daughter has a beautiful panther chameleon called George, and he is really one of the most exquisite looking reptiles you could set eyes on. This is a piece by Dun Sum, an artist I’ve not encountered before, who seems to favour painting at L Dub. Looking at his Instagram account, it looks like he is a designer/illustrator by profession who does a bit of street art in his spare time.

This chameleon is wonderfully colourful and cleanly painted with a really interesting fill pattern – closely mirroring the kinds of patterns you find on these creatures. I rather like the additional concealed skull just behind its head. All in all a rather nice piece, and I’m sure not the last I’ll be featuring from this artist.

      1. I know! We were so lucky. My kids loved them and I even put one on my Mum’s blouse once when she visited. It changed colour accordingly. 😀
        I don’t know why the chameleons went away – maybe climate change?

  1. Never occurred to m that one day I would see Lawrence Weston (anearlier enclave of Roman gentry) referred to as “L Dub”. Very amusing. The reptile is amazing.
