Stewy (DJ Derek), Leonard Lane, Bristol, August 2015

31. Leonard Lane (3)

This is a rather topical stencil which is by Stewy, whose dodo can also be found in Leonard Lane.

Stewy’s work includes stencils of iconic figures, and this one is of a well known celebrity in Bristol. DJ Derek is a 73 year-old disc jockey who plays sets in pubs and clubs in the Bristol area, and has also played at Glastonbury.

He went missing on 23 July this year, and has still not been found. Many fear the worst.

This stencil was produced before DJ Derek went missing, and the added graffiti makes sense when you understand the back-story.

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.
