In a quiet backwater in Bedminster not far from Dean Lane, is this wonderful new piece from Pelmo, an artist better known for his studies of outsized people doing everyday things like riding bicycles. This pencil piece comes as something of a surprise, but clearly shows what a great artist Pelmo is.
I love artists who turn the ordinary into the extraordinary with their work, and this outstanding study of an eraser on the end of a pencil is so full of interest and movement. Pelmo has captured a moment in time that is so familiar to all of us, and yet something we probably never give a second thought to. Superbly sprayed, this beauty is a highlight of the year so far.
