Visual Athletics Club has been recording the murals of
Penny Bearman in Deal, Kent. Here, the seafront and high 
street have fallen victim to the blight of closed down and 
boarded up shops, cinemas and bars.

Whilst property developers wait for the right moment to 
capitalise on their investment by demolition, refurbishment
or makeover, Penny has been busy providing the citizens 
and visitors of Deal with thought provoking murals.

Her narrative is drawn from the locus of the particular 
building and is executed in situ. The paintings are
brilliantly articulate. Visual agitation at its best.
