It’s not just Leith’s locals who can boast character. According to artist Tommy Perman there is a bit of the unusual along its streets and shop fronts. A new exhibition at The Red Door Gallery in Victoria Street explores the unique design choices made by town planners, local residents and shop owners alike including such playful names as “Bacon Rolls Etc”.
The exhibition will explore strong urban themes through faded glory, heavily guarded buildings hanging ‘Welcome’ signs and practical changes to listed buildings contradicting their original beauty. The art is shown in a variety of applications, print techniques, paper types and editing including limited edition skateboards from local skate shop FOCUS.
