Painting his large mural on a traditional bricked bridge underpass the artist explored his Phrenology ideas transferring his body map of modern diseases and abnormal conditions from his paper sketch to the giant wall.

Phrenology, meaning “mind”, and “knowledge” is a pseudomedicine primarily focused on measurements of the human skull, based on the concept that the brain is the organ of the mind, and that certain brain areas have localized, specific functions or modules.

The artist has painted the face in his tradition style where it has donned some glasses and a hat.

Loads of words and lines are connected to the character including Love, Dialogue, Travelling, Abandon Ship, Exhaust and Dancefloor to name a few!

Nearby is some unrelated work as the black wall continues which has been painted with a Nike logo and a R.T. for ‘Running Time’ possibly.
