2. Frogmore Street (1)

This is really one of my favourite works by my second favourite artist. It appeared about a year or so ago on a clean wall in Frogmore Street, yards away from the bridge on Park Street. It is called ‘Big Deal’ and signed by JPS.

John Paul Scanlon is a local artist who was born, and still lives in Weston-super-Mare. His early inspirations include M.C. Escher, Dali, Cezanne and DaVinci. There is no question though that his street art ‘career’, which began in 2009, was directly inspired by a Banksy exhibition.

There are several interesting interviews on the inter-web with JPS. He is reasonably prolific and will feature regularly in this blog.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
