This is one of two walls, that happen to be opposite each other at the entrance to St Werburghs tunnel, by Billy, while painting together with her buddy Morny. Billy’s pieces (she is called @billycolours on Instagram) are always brightly coloured and have a child-like simplicity to them.
This fabulous mural shows a figure in bed, presumably looking up at a mobile of planets, with a thought bubble and the words Wake Up! The piece tells a really simple story in a clean and clear way – Billy has a gift for this kinnd of story, and it shows tht you don’t need deep sophistication to get a message across. A bright and cheerful addition to the tunnel. Sadly this piece only lasted a few days before being bombed with rather inferior throw ups.
