This cuddly but sad-looking creature is busy sending notes to another sad creature at the far end of a long chain.
It is the work of Hayley Welsh, a highly respected British street artist, from Blackburn. Her street art is known for its surreal, fluffy, wide-eyed creatures, often with darker undertones.
This mural adorns a wall alongside the East Croydon railway station, as I spotted when standing there to change trains. It was created as part of the 2018 Croydon Rise Festival, which brought the town a huge range of work from many well-known street artists.
