gives bus shelter near Burnham-On-Sea a colourful new look!
bus shelter near Burnham-On-Sea has been transformed into a colourful
piece of art.
artist Malcolm Dormer has decorated the building in Berrow's Coast
Road, as pictured here, basing it on one of his paintings of Burnham-On-Sea
was commisioned to undertake the work by Berrow Parish Council,
which is his second bus shelter in the village.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Tourists and residents love the shelter
- my design is unique and I'm getting a lot of positive feedback.
My artwork is a great way to transform what would be a plain grey
latest design is based on my painting called 'The Grockles are Gone'
which I completed three years ago - it's a colourful scene with
deckchairs on the beach, Burnham-On-Sea lighthouse, and the sand
added: "Painting on a building is very different to a canvas
- the stone is crumbly and doesn't absorb the pain in the same way."
also painted another Berrow bus shelter with an amusing giraffe
theme, called Giraffic Park, that we
featured here in 2011.
bus shelter is due to be painted by Malcolm in the village over
the next few months.
of his art canvas paintings - which have been on show at Burnham's
Princess Theatre this month - are hung in Berrow village hall, featuring
a compendium of Berrow scenes.
