RIBA drawing day

Ben Pentreath

A few days after our exhibition opening, George, Francis and I spent the day at the RIBA and drew a massive drawing on the wall. A little crazy, and a lot of fun. Here are some photos of the work in progress, and here is a link to the five minute film that my cousin Ben made of the event…!

How does one put this without it sounding too gushing? “Ben Pentreath, you are my Hero!” (true, but a bit Much maybe). “Marry me, Ben Pentreath!” (no, that would just be embarrassing).

You see, in a world stuffed full of ill-proportioned PVC windows, a plethora of billboards and badly designed road/safety/parking/litter signs, B.P world is somewhere where one can breathe more easily! Great lungfuls of beauty, good taste and joy. Your garden is quite simply one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. I have found that it is impossible not to smile when looking at a picture of it. Thank you so much for sharing it with all of us.

Finally made it to the shop to take full advantage of the sale. Best bloody shop I have ever been in! Why can’t all shops have a nice old fashioned tin cash box?

But anyway, this comment was meant to be about your blog post above. That ‘Three Classicists’ video is absolutely the coolest thing I have seen for ages, and I really wish I had known about the exhibition. Thankfully I’ve now got a copy of the exhibition book, which I am fascinated and delighted by. All three of you are amazing. Actually I love going to the RIBA building at the best of times…I once spent a happy afternoon there obsessively photographing everything down to the door handles!

Okay, I agree, it’s all far too gushing. Maybe just this: “Congratulations, and thank you”.


wonderful stuff! congrats to you all…

Gorgeous work!! I love a good architectural mural.
