An outbreak of Meades

  • Comment

Has Jonathan Meades becomes a muse for street artists?

An unlikely figure has appeared spray-painted on the wall of a bungalow in Whitstable and a boarded-up building in Bristol.

The painting of Jonathan Meades, in the style of street artist Banksy, depicts the idiosyncratic critic and RIBA Fellow in his trademark suit and sunglasses looking something like an extra from Reservoir Dogs.

Has Meades become a muse for street artists? Is his likeness being used as an oblique comment on neglected British architecture given his well-known TV series Abroad in Britain? Answers on a postcard (or a wall) please.
