Colour and Texture

I spotted this mural by the artist Birdo, aka Jerry Rugg, on the side of a building on College St near Kensington Market. Birdo is known for his bright colours and wonderful textures in his work and the subjects are mostly animals. This one seems to be some kind of deconstructed creature but you can certainly see his style at its best.
