Remember these boards? Painted by Cheo and 3Dom, then painted out by the council without the owner’s permission, for which the chief exec apologised.
Well, they’ve been pretty much unpainted for a bit, but at the weekend Sepr went back to paint them, starting on Saturday, but not being able to go back and finish them on Sunday due to the rain. Seemingly the only photo of the work as far as it got up to is courtesy of Unity on Flickr (click for bigger).
They looked like that this (Monday) morning too, but by this evening, they’d been blacked out by council workers again. Someone’s already been past and added their own contribution to the debate by the looks of things though.
Close up on the left…
…and the right.
So, painted out in less than a day then. Let’s not forget that whilst the building may apparently be Grade II listed, the boards on which the painting is actually being done seem very unlikely to be. Leaving the boards painted black when the rest of Stokes Croft is covered in murals just looks ridiculous as well, hardly an improvement to the area.
Sure the PRSC will have some comment on this very soon.
