So once again, the seasonal task of painting the Blind Tiger wall came around and presented me with a whole new challenge. To paint the entire wall this time.

Local dubwise producer and reggae superstar, Prince Fatty asked me if I could paint something that promoted his monthly rub a dub club at the venue and included himself, Hollie Cook and the mighty Horseman.

As it is a large wall I also asked Req if he could come and paint the wall. He included a brilliant portrait of the beautiful Evie Jones and I also set about making a feature of the windows on the walls this time so that they didn’t stand out from the design too much.

I went for an Easter Island style theme, where the statues on the left are of Fatty and Horsey. I couldn’t bring myself to make Hollie Cook out of stone, so added her in with tiger print costume leaning against a blind tiger statue. This worked out as Hollie’s new album artwork is of a similar vain, but with a voodoo theme.

The fourth statue from the left is a tribute to a beautiful soul, VITO, who sadly left this world last month. Well known and loved by many and especially the Playgroup gang here at the Blind Tiger, I felt it only right to honour him in this mural.

All were very happy with the result and a great turn around on the piece, taking about a day and a half.

Props to Req, TDK, The Blind Tiger Crew, Fatty, Horsey, Hollie Cook and one love to VITO, Rest in peace.
