Sakuratei Restaurant Live Painting by Belgian artist PSOMAN

October 28th, 2013 Nigel No comments

3 years ago i had the pleasure to meet Psoman over a coffee down in garden cafe, got talking and before the day was out we had a great new mural painting up on the gallery wall, one that has attracted many positive comments from visitors……..

Yesterday Psoman returned to DFG trailed closely by a TV TOKYO film crew who had met him at Narita airport with the intention of capturing a “fly on the wall” type documentary following the artist ……first stop DFG sister restaurant for an unscheduled live painting session! ……….
