…… and it’s hello again from Glen Molloy.
You may remember Glen Molloy featuring prominently on this blog during the Winter months for his work across Belfast, on the Wall Of Fame just off Corporation Street, and portraits of recently deceased celebrities such as Carrie Fisher, George Michael and Prince.
He went quiet for a while, but now he’s back, with a social media post of a new mural he had just completed – a tribute to The Two Ronnies.
It is just their faces. You may recognise that the end of the show’s opening credits had just their faces. You may notice that this mural replicates this by having Ronnie Corbett on the left as you approach it and Ronnie Barker on your right.
The mural is in the car park at Smithfield, opposite North Street, if you want to go and visit.
Curiously, it is not far from the Mace on Royal Avenue, where I found out that Ronnie Barker had died in 2005, as I popped in to get some things and it was the lead story on the top of the hour news on the instore radio station.
As there was another mural above it, the photos aren’t the best, so apologies for that.
While I was checking that out, I walked past the David Bowie mural by Visual Waste that was painted within weeks of his death in January 2016.
Sadly, it’s fallen into a state of disrepair, so it might not be there for much longer.
Hope you enjoy the photos, i’m off to Smithfield Market. I’m hoping to pick up some fork handles.
