The Pigeon in Art
Turns out even the famous artist Picasso loved the pigeon.
He did this:
A really colourful pic full of loads of pigeons. He called them ‘Doves’, but really they were just pigeons enjoying the view and getting it on a bit – and a very nice view it is. Wish I could have a bit of that tbh instead of this Arctic shit. Global colding sucks.
Talking about ‘enjoying’ the view – not sure what to make of the new London skyline. Apparently there’s going to be loads more skyscraper type buildings. Bring it on I say, apart from one thing – no window ledges for pigeons to chill on – none whatsoever.
Check this out for starters – the latest of London’s new buildings – The Gherkin:
It’s the one in the middle that looks a bit like this:
Just the other way up. Ate one once. Bits of it hiding under a burger bun. Fucking nasty.
Anyway – bottom line is – buildings built to look like veg – but without any thought for the pigeon. Couple of mates tried to hang out on The Gherkin roof one day – till they found out there wasn’t a roof – just a big old spike. Still getting flashbacks now, apparently.
Course Ken’s doing it on purpose. Next on his list of round buildings: The Satsuma. Nice one, Ken. We’ve got your number.
Obv your fear of the pigeon is the reason you have to work in the roundest of buildings ever built:
Truth is – we don’t need no sills. Reckon we should fly up to your window and just stare at you a while. Then you’d really shit yourself.
