A bit of a random post today on my insights into the lives of seagulls! Living in Aberystwyth right on the seafront, I have a prime spectator view of the activities of these monstrous birds! I’ve witnessed them launch aerial assaults on kids to get their fish and chips, poo, just at the right time on peoples heads and arrive in full force like an army at night to get the remains of student kebabs. This is the view from my window, so you can see how close I live to the sea itself, funnily enough no seagulls in sight.
Living by the sea has definitely rubbed off on me. There are a lot of nautical themes running through my work at the moment and seeing these giant birds every single day giving me the stink eye through the window inspired me to make a piece based on them. Here it is!
