Mupan takes a break...
Mupan takes a break...
Sometimes the stresses of modern life get a little too much and it’s imperative to take a break and recharge the batteries. Even the seemingly indefatigable Mupan needs this from time to time. So occasionally he packs his bags and heads to Naples, his favourite holiday spot on the west coast of Italy. Here we can see him in his glad-rags taking a little time out from the travails of the tourist life and lounging on one of the many conveniently placed rubbish dumps that litter (pun intended!) the streets of Naples and really take on a life of their own in summertime. He just adores it there and will definitely be back again.
As it is such a sunny day we thought we’d hit the streets for a little Free Art Friday action and get Mupan’s little memento out there for someone to find and brighten up their undoubtedly dreary day. It’s just a shame you can’t really see the glitter (in the white area of this pic) as it really sparkles in this lovely Spring sunshine.

Once the idea for ‘Where you wheelie bin?’ crept into my head i knew there was no going back. It comes from a joke my dad used to tell us which revolved around a misunderstanding of the line ‘Where you wheelie bin?’
The line obviously suggested placement on a wheelie bin and i think the coup de grace was coming up with the QR code which links to a version of the joke on the internet. How very technically advanced this little jape is! I was just going to leave you to work our how to read the QR code on your own but as someone pointed out there are probably relatively few people with a QR code reader on their phone so I’ll give you the link that the QR code takes you to – click here
I think as a trial run/initial idea i think this works well and so now we just need to take it to the next level. Watch this space!
