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).
