The Flying Pig Pub – buy print
Fine Art Print – 33 x 48 cm
Print based on watercolour of “The Flying Pig Pub” in Cambridge is an imaginative depiction of the beloved pub.
The painting features the pub building suspended under a massive pig-shaped balloon, as Syd Barrett and David Gilmour have a conversation on top of the balloon about the cover of “The Dark Side of the Moon”. The painting also features the landlords of the pub standing at the doors, as if they were watching the scene unfold.
The painting captures the whimsical spirit of the pub, and is a tribute to the pub’s history and the people who have made it such a beloved institution. The painting also serves as a reminder that the pub was always a place of fun, friendship, great music nights and will live on in many people’s memories.
This painting serves as a reminder of the Flying Pig Pub – as the pub is closed now – and it could even be partially demolished by developers.
