Kid Crayon, Small Street, Bristol, August 2015

11. Small Street

In a small alley close to the NW end of Small Street is an intriguing wheatpaste by Kid Crayon. I am noticing more and more of his street art in Bristol, and rather enjoy his approach. I don’t know what it is called, but ‘blue face’ might have to do for now.

Kid Crayon describes himself as an illustrator or animator, but works mostly as a street artist. He considers the aesthetics, subject matter and location of a particular work, and indeed his locations tend to be low key and slightly off the beaten track.

Most of KC’s work are wheatpastes, which until I went to Paris this Spring, I had little time for, but am becoming rather fond of. I will post more. One has already been the subject of a haiku I wrote a few weeks back (20. Wheatpaste).

KC tends to sign his works with his initials reversed and the K mirrored.

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.
