Haka, Star and Garter, Bristol, July 2019

2363. Star and Garter (3)

The tribute on this wall, to Dutty Ken by Haka, is most fitting and appropriate as it is painted on the side wall of the Star and Garter pub where Dutty Ken had been landlord and DJ since 1993 up until his sudden death in early 2017.

Although the portrait is not the truest likeness it conveys the fondness in which Dutty Ken was held, and if you look carefully you can see another tribute on the same wall. This wall was given the makeover in time for this year’s St Paul’s carnival. A touching piece from Haka.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
