This piece may portray a serious message, Paul has taken a lighter approach and introduced a range of famously named bears and bear related matters into the imagery.
Probably the most prominent one is ‘Paddington’ taken from the sign of the London Borough.
Then there’s ‘Baloo’ on the paint tin and ‘BooBoo is out of the woods, honey’.
On a side note, can you spot the window in the top right hand corner depicting the whole country?
A graffitied ‘Pooh’ on the wall with reference to a ‘picnic site’, a reference to the teddy bear’s picnic.
‘Fozzie’ is also showing as a graffiti ‘tag’ on the wall just below the ‘Big Surprise’ from the song ‘if you go down to the woods today….’.
Just above that you’ll see ‘Eddie’s Doin porridge’ reference to ‘Goldilocks’.
Then there’s ‘Rupert’ and ‘Yogi’ discarded tea packet and coke bottle. Not only is this a ‘Grizzly bear’ it is also a ‘Grizzly’ scene.
There is so much more within this piece for you to explore and gain an insight into Paul’s creative brain and sense of humour and irony.
