Hi Brian m8
Just a quick question, I meant to ask Margaret when I was at DEP but forgot.
Who's idea was it to use part of Michelangelo's The Creation Of Man, for the outside of DEP ?

Cheers..Skirge graemlins/smokin.gif

yes...a friend of ours,a graffiti artist Tony,painted it for the arrival of Melvin Bragg when he came to interview me and ali for the south bank show....and it covered up the graffiti that was on the wall,then the guys across the road asked him to do theirs as well. Melvin loved it and was well made up asking us to be in a photo with him outside. BT

I got pictures somewhere that Nigel B (former Oracabessa label manager) gave me of when they were painting (spraying!) the artwork. Also saw the artwork on canvas at DEP by the same artist in the same room the pooltable was :) Must try to dig them up, the pictures that is.
