Everyone and their mums has been queueing up to pay tribute to Prince over the last few days. From Kate Bush’s heartfelt letter to David Gilmour’s moving cover of ‘Purple Rain’ at the Albert Hall on Sunday, they’ve all been at it, and this London street artist is no exception.
Mostly purple (of course), the work also features subtle references to songs from Prince’s well-loved back catalogue. Two doves and a red rose are included, as is The Purple One’s notorious love symbol.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Pegasus said, “Prince was one of my idols, a true visionary with extraordinary talent. He was an inspiration to many and loved by all. When I heard of his passing I had to pay tribute.”
He added, “The two doves are in relation to my favourite Prince song ‘When Doves Cry’ and a red rose which represents passion, desire and our symbol of eternal enduring love for the people’s Prince.”
