Cosmo Sarson, Breakdancing Jesus, Stokes Croft, Bristol, July 2015

5. Stokes Croft, Canteen (1)

Breakdancing Jesus is a huge mural on one of the most desirable walls in Bristol. The work was commissioned by the Canteen and completed in June 2013.

The artist, Cosmo Sarson, is a painter from London, who was inspired by his love of breakdancing and witnessing some breakdancers performing for the Pope.

It is a really striking and challenging mural, and I love it. You might also just spot a small blue disc to the left of the mural which commemorates the Bristol riots in the area in April 1980.

It is opposite the famous Banksy ‘Mild Mild West’ mural. This mural was planned to remain for two years, which means that it may not be there much longer. We’ll see.

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.
