Up, up and away (mural)

A winter sports scene is being painted onto the side of a business property in Reece Mews, immediately opposite the home of Francis Bacon, one of Britain’s most distinguished artists.

The work is by London artist Johny Midnight, who is well known in the Alps for his ski art.

The mural pays a little tribute to Bacon, who died in 1992.

Midnight said: “Having popped into Bacon’s old studio, I thought it would be fun to pay homage to the great artist, painting his portrait as if he is critiquing my work."

The work is on the side of a building owned by ski holiday and property specialists Erna Low, which commissioned the mural
