This wall is famous. It is on the side of the Full Moon pub in Stokes Croft, and is a favorite spot for street art. It is a great place to demonstrate the ever-changing nature of street art and graffiti walls.
Over the 2016 Christmas break, a ‘Sandy Claws’ character (from the Tim Burton film – The Nightmare Before Christmas) appeared on the recently plain painted wall. I don’t know the artist, but it looks like it was commissioned by the pub owners to draw attention to their Attic Bar.
A few days later the piece was gone and the wall painted over, and this is how it looks now.
However, I took a picture of the same wall in November 2014 and captured the SPQR ‘astronaut’ (which I had incorrectly believed to be a Banksy when I took the photograph). SPQR is a West Country ‘artisan’ who emulates the Banksy stencil style and dark humour. I’m not too sure who sprayed the embracing skeletons, but they rather tickle me.
It will be interesting to see what appears here next.
