This stunning piece from RichT was painted way back in April, before I even knew of the existence of this little alleyway, and has been in my archive for a little while too, so I am a little late to the party. But better late than never.

The mural is beautifully proportioned and makes really good use of the gateway and turns it into a feature. The message is clear – breathe – smell the flowers and connect with natureā€¦ slow down. It took me a little while to notice the hand holding the flower to the right hand side of the piece because it is quite stylised. A really lovely piece from RichT.

What an absolutely gorgeous piece, and what a lovely way to decorate a corner wall. The work is by Rich T and is exactly the kind of piece that brings light, colour and joy to a grey, dull space. The act of chucking a bit of paint on a wall (albeit extremely skilfully) can raise the spirits of an area.

Rich T specialises in these stylised flower pieces and turns out something that looks amazing and so professional (if you know what I mean). He recently collaborated with Mr Penfold, and there would appear to be some influences incorporated into this piece. A stunner and if you should happen to be passing, well worth stopping by and taking a good look.
