E is for... electric avenue. as in: “we gonna rock down to electric avenue” as sung by eddy grant. when i rocked down there to take photos for this week’s #londonsongproject
blog, i came upon this stunning portrait mural at the end of the street. only having the haziest memory of what eddy grant looks like, i thought maybe it was him. doh. in actuality it is of local legend michaeal johns who runs the public conveniences in the street market. it’s part of a series by brilliant artist @dreph_
who celebrates the unsung heroes and heroines of everyday life by creating artworks of them in public spaces. what an utterly lovely idea! what i’m really relishing as i pursue my crazy #alphabetchallenge, is all the interesting discoveries i’m making along the way. happy monday!
