Mr. Styles' Menagerie
On Sunday I took a walk and came across this guy painting a curious mural on a popular graffiti wall near the Westway. I asked if I could take some pictures while he painted, and he said sure, as long as I didn't show his face.
The next day I went back to shoot the finished piece -- one of the errands I had to run Monday morning, despite the rain. (I didn't want to wait for fear the mural would be painted over, which tends to happen quickly.) The artist signed it "Mr. Styles 1985 KLDs." Pretty great! I especially like the duck with the crown and the walking stick -- and all their curious little feet.
Is there a message here? A fox in the henhouse? A wolf in...people's clothing?
