Duke of York Pub

 

Owners Carmel and Yosh Coe of the Duke of York pub in St Werburghs had a competition to find an artist to design and paint the side of the Duke of York pub, which was won by Alex Mack, an Illustrator from Cambridge.

This new mural takes inspiration from the grand old Duke of York nursery rhyme and looks stunning!

I was very fortunate to have followed Alex’s progress over the weeks with her painting and getting to know Alex a little bit and it’s great to see the finished piece which was unveiled yesterday as well as the new pub sign designed by Ben Boston which really works well with Alex’s work.
