John Archer, London’s first black mayor, although here he appears to be purple.
Taken from an article by David Rosenberg in Time Out (No.2320, March 17th-23rd, 2015) about a mural entitled Battersea In Perspective. The mural, which is on Dagnall Street, was painted in 1988 by Brian Barnes. Photograph by Rob Greig.
The Time Out was found on a train.

If You Are New Here: This project started (January 2015) with me sewing junk-mail faces onto a big woollen blanket. It has since expanded to include images from magazines and leaflets, I find in bins and on public transport. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the portrait was part of some junk mail, pushed through my letterbox. I will always credit photographers, illustrators, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.
