Pelmo has been experimenting for a little while with some fascinating studies of characters in orange and red doing unusual things. This fine piece, perfectly located in Dean Lane, is another climbing piece, this time with both climbers more obviously positioned and related to one another than the one in New Stadium Road.
This charming work shows two characters, one belaying the other as he carefully climbs a ‘chimney’ between a wall and telegraph pole. There is a lot of thought and love shown by Pelmo in his pieces, and I always feel that he has a strong relationship and affection for his characters. This is a brilliant small piece that brings a smile to my face each time I see it.
