In what he regards as the apprenticeship of his career, Edward Povey painted 25 multi-storey murals in the 1970s – gaining notice in the British media for these depictions, mainly of the histories of the towns in which they were painted. HELTER-SKELTER, whilst not necessarily the most accomplished, was certainly the most famous of his murals at the time.
