This week Doverodde Diary’s World of Exteriors Sunday Special brings you an art world exclusive. Never before have works by anonymous guerrilla artist ‘Black Sheep’ been seen in the press.
Black Sheep was nowhere to be seen
We believe Black Sheep be a native of the Thy region, for each work responds with subtlety to the colours and textures of its surroundings.
These works bring flowers where there were none, and cover rude metal in woolen moss and bare bark with cotton lichen.

Our resident art critic suggests that this may be a self-portrait. It is certainly far from unlikely that it displays an element of the sympathy felt by one four-legged creature for another.
Let us hope that Black Sheep will be a bellweather for textile arts in Doverodde, and maybe even further afield.
