The Spirit of Soho
A most unusual gothic house in north London suburbia.
Location: Broadwick Street, Soho, London
Description: This mural was created in 1991 by the Free Form Arts Trust centres on St Anne, dedicatee of the local church. Her gaudy frock contains a veritable A-Z of Soho, with fruit and veg in the warp and local landmarks in the weft. A shifty looking crowd of (mostly male) local notables stand at her feet, hoping to gain a crafty upskirt vantage. And is that a spliff-smoking hare rogering a dog?
There's so much on here, it's ridiculous - check out our pic below.
