    There's a rather garish paint job being applied to the building's façade.

    funny how they can get a pro camera set up but not knock up a few posters :hmm:

    ah! posters don't go in funding docs/glossy leaflets and brochures, nice colourful pics do tho!

    Black or garish though? I prefer the garish myself.

    I think it looked nicer without the orange scribble all over it.

    Rushy AKA some / certain posters

    To be fair, the colour has been horrendous since long before the pub went out of business.

    Maybe they are working towards this..

    It appears to be getting worse at the moment but maybe it'll be like one of those Rolf Harris things that look utterly crap until the end.

    On Tumblr the "artists" looked as though they would not have been out of place doing up the Reichstag in 1934

    They aren't the ones doing the paint job as far as I understand.

    Posters have to be giant ones with "bold fonts" to make sure people can notice them but mural artwork has to be as polite as possible so as not to attract attention. Those are the rules around here.

    You can't work out the difference between the purpose of a mural and a poster?

    I recommend a course in basic art and graphics, and recommend you refrain from posting up any more clueless nonsense in the meantime.

    Here's my piece on Angel in the Lost Pubs of Brixton section.
    It's been in and out a few times as the place closed and reopened, but it looks ilke it's gone for good now :(

    I've got some really interesting updates about a circus family that used to live there too - I'll do that as a separate feature sometime.
