53. Nelson Street hoarding (1)

There is a lot of building work going on in the old centre of town, mostly the construction of accommodation blocks for students. Of course this means that there is a fair amount of permitted street art space on the hoardings around the sites.

Andy Council is an artist who lives in Bristol. His works usually incorporate dinosaurs or other animals and architecture, and much of it is about Bristol. You can see his work all over the place, frequently in community spaces that need brightening up. He is also the ‘go to’ designer for all sorts of leaflets and other communications material.

This work painted in 2014 is a typical piece. It is temporary and likely to be gone soon.

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. Great pics. Thanks for the knowledge not only about the artist, but also that there is actually a name, hoarding, for that kind of fence around a construction site. I wonder if there might be someone or organization who can keep these paintings before they are destroyed (it would a kind of large exhibition for sure). There is also an interesting facet to knowing they are temporary, just like all things are ultimately.
