Stinkfish, Stokes Croft, Bristol, September 2015

Heading North on Cheltenham Road from the centre, you will see arguably the most striking and iconic mural that Bristol has to offer.

This beautiful portrait is by the Colombian artist Stinkfish, and is at the hub of so much other brilliant street art in the area. It is funny how we become accustomed to just seeing things but not noticing them. Today I stopped and took a really good look at this and it is absolutely outstanding.

There is a bit more background to this mural, which was painted in June 2012, here.

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.

  1. I love Stinkfish! I did a post on him even. There is another really great Colombian called Guache–Bob Ramak (Piran Cafe) spent two weeks talking to him in Bogata. He has some great images of his work and promised more. if he doesn’t hurry up,I might do it myself! Lol.
