Irony, Camden Town, London, November 2017

3973. Camden Town

The seemingly constant presence of Irony in the West of England at the moment prompted me to dive into my archive to find a London piece by the artist that I have until right now not published before. I wish I had more time to post from my archives, because there are so many gems there that deserve to be on this blog, but alas I might have to wait until my retirement to find the time.

This classic Irony mural, photographed in November 2017, is a portrait of a woman sprayed with immaculate control and filled with incredible detail and interest. The thing I return to again and again when I see this piece is the slightly ill-fitting magenta-tinted glasses, which draw you in to take a closer look.

As I said on my post yesterday, featuring the Weston-super-Mare cockerel, Irony is a genius. There is little more to be said (genius is a word I rarely use, and so it is written with a genuine belief that Irony fits into that category).
