46. Greville Road

Jodi, who painted this mural, lives in Brislington, Bristol. He is a direct contemporary of Banksy, and started as a graffiti artist in 1987 at the age of 15 at the Barton Hill Youth Club.

He left the graffiti behind him and studied design and is now an established designer and brand consultant. In 2008 he came out of ‘retirement’ and started working on street art commissions. This mural was completed for this year’s Upfest, and is a treat for those who like incredibly detailed and realistic work.

Jodi also took a commission in Millennium Square this year above the drinking water fountain, depicting the source of the water that the fountain is fed from. This commission was part of European Green Capital 2015.

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. Love the drips. Yeah I really like this kind of realism. All those guys from that generation and from Bristol–the water? Social problems?
    There is an area in Argentina (Rio Plata) which is the literary equivalent of Bristol. I have always wondered about the factors taht brought it about. Sorry, getting too deep. It is another rainy Friday. I need to get some rain boots–my feet have been wet allday. Blame it on my wet feet.
