I’m not entirely sure what I think of this piece of artwork that has appeared outside the esteemed House Of Bottles off-licence on Coldharbour Lane, Brixton.
The piece – by the prolific and rather talented artist Morganico – shows what appears to be a folded, Gollum-like creature sat on a tiny island eating its own hand, with the caption, “By Our Own Hand We Live” underneath.
I’m all for a bit of art on the streets and the colours are great, but I find this hand-eating fella just a tiny bit, well, disturbing.
What do you think?

Maybe they should enter into a “mutually beneficial relationship” with “All Eyes on Africa” underneath Brixton Rec!
Beg your pardon – the should read “All Eyes on Egypt” of course
i thingk i likes it…. (but then im biased!)
we gave 3 designs to the off licence owner – and in the spirit of democracy we thawt to offer the final decision to a public vote az to which design became the wall art- the booze buying public there gave an overwhelming favourable vote to this crazzzy critter (that i personally wantid to paint, but thawt no one in their right minds would agree to and have this outside their shop! lol) big respeck to House Of Bottles bo$$man for championing the spirit of strange with the ‘Dream Oracle’ minimural…
Disturbings great, weirds wonderful, unorthodox is amazing and Morganic is all of these and more. Keep up the good work Rainbow Fingaz!!!
cheeers geeza, glad you approve! (^%
