Toy Souls

Trick of the Eye

"Swanage, Dorset, is a small British seaside town which has, like most British seaside towns seen better days, but in Swanage they make a feature of their past. As one walks from the High Street to the pier you pass the old pierhead building, closed some years ago and boarded up. However some enterprising artists, Antonia Phillips and Nina Camplin, have covered the front of the building with this wonderful 'trompe l'oeil' fresco. It is eye catching, to say the least".
