The painting part

There’s a lot of public sculpture about these days but not so much public painting apart from murals and graffiti. This rare figurative example is from a long series of very large-scale public works by the same artist. Strangely in spite of practically all of this artist's subject matter being focused on popular events, it tends to go over most people’s heads. You can see it installed here.
