The guys at Pizza Deli in Sydney knew they wanted something for their new restaurant but weren’t quite sure what. We worked with them to develop a brief, asking them about the area, their business, their anticipated clientele... in order to find something we could use as the basis of our artwork to create a piece that locals could relate to. After a couple of visits and a few pizzas we noticed lots of dog owners, and a lot of French bulldogs passing by.

Dan had fun with this brief, creating a composite design out of researched photos and graffiti tags. The tags were added into and around the artwork to give it a bit of a street feel. Dan painted this guys over three days and was fuelled by many delicious pizzas!

Dan didn't just create an artwork for us, he created the vibe of our restaurant. People stop by just to take a photo in front of our Frenchie. We love him.

This piece has been a real hit in the area with lots of people taking photos when either stopping to get a pizza or just walking by. Pizza Deli use the painting as a backdrop to heaps of social media posts too.
