The Disappearing Lenkiewicz

Robert Lenkiewicz is an artist from Plymouth, a rebel, kicked out of the Royal Academy but the master of portraits and character observation.

He was renowned for this and decorated the exterior of several properties on Plymouth with vast murals local characters and beautiful women.

Sadly the paintings were never protected against the elements and now are a shadow of their former selves.

Lenkiewicz sadly passed away many years ago and like him, these paintings appear to be lost to the world.

23mm X100T 1/125 f/13 ISO 640

I took this with the X100T.

It’s at the top of a tall building known as The House That Jack Built, and I shot this at street level.

I managed to get the perspective by using the geometry tool in Lightroom.
