One of my favourite Face 1st pieces used to occupy this space, so it is just as well that it has been painted over by another artist whose work I love, Silent Hobo. In fairness the old Face 1st piece had recently been tagged and was looking a little bit sorry for itself. I have a feeling that this piece might be a commission for the cafe opposite, but I can’t say so for sure.
Silent Hobo had been a very busy man this year and has produced a host of excellent new pieces all over the city and this is just the latest to come off the production line. In the heart of St Pauls, this young woman is enjoying a barbecue with a sunny topical beach in the background – just a dream for most of us in these pandemic times, indeed a dream for most of us in normal times. Silent Hobo conjures up a peaceful atmosphere in this laid back part of town.
