Overlooking the English Channel and nestled amongst the grand Victorian buildings of the St Leonards promenade. One of the grand facades has had a different kind of paint job from street artist Dotmasters.
Known for his wall paper inspired patterned surfaces and his ‘rude kid’ characters. The mural extends across the entire frontage of the building, a hotel known as Rubys Rooms. It’s not quite what you expect to see in the area in terms of street art and it’s certainly noticeable.
The artist has been spending a bit of time in the area recently. He has a solo exhibition just around the corner at the Stella Dore Gallery on Norman Road. There, his latest body of work can be seen. His mainly stenciled images poke fun at the world of consumerism. Images he then blends with his inspirations from the world of graffiti.
Working with the Stella Dore, the giant painted facade is a collaboration with them and Rubys Rooms. The gallery has operated in a number of guises over the years. Now settled in St Leonards it has its roots firmly in the urban art world. Working with the likes of Dotmasters for a number of years they have now brought him to the town with a bang.
‘Line Em Out‘ by Dotmasters exhibits at the Stella Dore Gallery on Norman Road in St Leonards from 26 July 2019 to 24 August 2019. The painted facade can be found on Rubys Rooms, 54 Eversfield Place. For more articles featuring the work of Dotmasters click here.
