My Launderette

This stunning mural is on the wall of the launderette that is next door to my GP’s surgery in Stennack, St Ives. It is a huge mural that takes up the whole side of the St Ives launderette. It depicts a man, a woman and a little dog in fishing boat SS226. There is the Cornish St Piran’s flag, lobster pots, the harbour and an engine house (tin mine). It is by the freehand aerosol artist Sketch86.

      The only one I have found in St Ives, but I have seen a couple of interesting murals in Penzance.

    A beautiful mural in an unexpected place. Lovely!

    1. Heyjude says:

      On the side of the building too, but very noticeable if you walk up the hill towards the launderette.

    I really love to see well done street art

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, this is very nicely done, almost looks like a chalk drawing.

  5. beetleypete says:

    That’s a good one indeed, Jude. For some reason I didn’t expect to see such things in St Ives, even given the artistic associations of the town.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      It is the only one I have seen Pete, and then only because I used the car park nearby once. It is a little way out of the actual town.

    It is beautiful. I am in awe of the artists who can create these and bring colour and joy to public spaces.

    This is terrific Jude! Sure beats a blank old cinder block wall!!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It sure does!
