Conrico paints an awful lot of commissions on shutters and shop fronts, and this is a recent one opposite the M32 Spot in Easton. I don’t know how he gets his commissions, but he is either very persuasive or his ‘brand’ is recognised in the area and he gets work through word of mouth. Probably a blend of the two.
I don’t think that this is Conrico at his best, and that sometimes working to a brief can be a bit limiting, but it is nonetheless an interesting foodie triptych. Painted on the shutters of Desi Eats, an establishment I haven’t visited, is a selection of fast food, burgers and chips, alongside an oversize stylised knife and fork.
The second shutter has more fast food and a little delivery van, a bit like a tuk tuk. I am guessing that Desi Eats also deliver. I am not too sure about the ‘health and wealth’ claim on the outside, but maybe there is a more healthy selection of food available. A fun and rather different piece from Conrico.
