This is my 1st sculpture which I designed & painted for the wonderful Shaun in the City project called 'Bahhbersheep', inspired by the old fashioned barbers and their signage & aesthetic.
He features barbers pole legs, a spray painted worn & rusted chrome body with gold & black hand-painted typography and is finished off with a gilded gold moustache, which is real 23.5 carat gold leaf!!
He's located on Wapping road, just up from the M Shed, in his own purpose built pen, thanks to the sponsors Wapping Wharf! He'll be on display as part of the Bristol trail until the end of August, then he'll be on display as part of a group exhibitions in London & Bristol of all sculpture, then he'll be auctioned off, all to raise money for the Bristol Children's hospital!
