Eshay! Mike's new mural is somewhat a testament to our lad culture.
Mike shared with us this old lad painter- he is really cool and the story behind how he came to be is really interesting! Have a read below and make sure you goto Mike's instagram handle to follow more work from him @mike__watt
"I made this guy up as I was painting him but he turned into something I’ve been thinking about for a while. Not trying to get too deep but people seem to hate change and want things to keep going like they have been. You see it in art quite a bit, people get annoyed when someone changes up their style or does anything commercial. It’s like you have to be painting the same thing in the same way until you’re an old man. It was fun painting him, I think I’ll do a series of old lad painters when I stop being a hermit. " Mike Watt
