The Cat colours up Dum­bar­ton

Bowl­ing club is lat­est to don mu­ral

Lennox Herald - - SPORT - Carla Tal­bot

A bowl­ing club has be­come the lat­est West Dun­bar­ton­shire build­ing to get a colour­ful treat­ment cour­tesy of a street artist.

Barry Jenk­ins — AKA Barry the Cat — is well known through­out the area for his many mu­rals. The Glas­gow artist added Dum­bar­ton Bowl­ing Club to his list of work — paint­ing the colour­ful in­stal­la­tion to the wall on their bowl­ing green.

The 42-year-old artist al­ready has a brim­ming port­fo­lio of art­work across Dum­bar­ton and Alexan­dria — and his lat­est cre­ation takes the to­tal to 10.

He says he had never had as much work in one area be­fore, and his ef­forts have gained the at­ten­tion from a num­ber of busi­nesses through­out West Dun­bar­ton­shire since he first painted The Laugh­ing Fox mu­ral in May this year.

Barry said: “This has never hap­pened to me be­fore. I am nor­mally dot­ted all over the place.

“I’ve never had this many jobs back to back and in the one place.”
