18. Hillgrove Street (1)

A fabulous walk into work today through the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft took me past one of the most eye-catching murals in Bristol.

This artwork is actually a combination of several artists overwriting each other’s work.

The original bare wall on the side of the house was painted in 2008 by Phlegm, an artist from Sheffield, renowned for his works all over the world. There was also a panda under the street name.

This first work was painted over by the MM13 crew who created the magnificent wave. They spared the panda.

Phlegm returned in June 2009 to add the characteristic figures on the left.

The whole thing is stunning; one of the best walls in Bristol.
