Nick Walker | Cardinal Sinister | London

With tensions rising in regard to Pope Benedict XVI’s arrival in London this week, this rather excellent stencil portrait of the Pope stroking a fluffy white cat a la Blofeld appeared opposite the Royal Albert Hall in the early hours this morning | The image, entitled Cardinal Sinister was created by artist Nick Walker who, as well as alligning himself with the views of those planning to Protest The Pope in a march and rally due to take place on Saturday, has a solo show coming up in London’s Art Sensus gallery – the PR of which will no doubt be helped by any controversy this new Pope portrait may stir up and boobosh can’t resist a good bit of propaganda | This painting will provoke more people to question The Pope’s visit than a thousand protest leaflets could ever do. It crosses all language barriers to deliver the message. Absolutely brilliant! | This painting will provoke more people to question The Pope’s visit than a thousand protest leaflets could ever do! | Walker’s gallery show In Gods We Trust will run from October 13th to November 27th at Art Sensus (formerly Orel Art), 7 Howick Place, London SW1P 1BB | web.mac.com/nickwalkerz
