I’ve always loved the character and stories surrounding Sherlock Holmes. In the recent years there has been even more content created with movies as well as a TV series featuring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman (playing Dr Watson).
I’ve painted the portrait on a shutter in Hackney, depicting a more traditional Sherlock holding his magnifying glass and smoking his pipe, watching pedestrians walk by. Anyone could be a suspect so… watch out!
