I use this roundabout frequently and have been aware of loads of graffiti dotted around its superstructure. I decided on Tuesday to park up and take a closer look. The whole place is awash with amazing street art. Most of it is made up of wildstyle burners (intricate lettering) although there are some great art pieces too. Today I’ll start off with an artist I’ve not come across before.
This burner is by Laic 217. I imagine he is local, as there are a couple of his works nearby. My searches on the Interweb have not given me much information about the artist, but he does have an active Instagram account.
This piece has a symmetry about it, and the gaping portrait reminds me a little of the ‘Hellraiser’ movie. I’ll post more as I find it.
Yesterday was a red-letter day for me. I must have gathered up some 50 or more new (to me) pieces around Bristol. Something has to give…either I stop taking pictures or I post more often. Whatever happens, my backlog is getting serious.
This is an absolutely outstanding piece by Sepr and Piro. I have written on many occasions about Sepr and his wonderful work, indeed his work previously adorned this wall. Piro is a bit of a mystery to me, and I am having to do a little more digging around.
Together this collaboration is almost perfect. The colours are amazing and the balance between the characters and the burner works really well.
The piece is relatively recent, I believe it was sprayed in early march, and it retains its freshness.
I absolutely love this work and I also love the location, it has a small footfall…this is a work of love.
On the practice wall outside the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft, is a very different piece by Mr Sle7en from the one featured a couple of days ago.
This time a humorous piece, somewhat critical of middle-class activists and people, well…a bit like me I suppose. Ouch! It is very funny, and I love the bourbon biscuit. Lots of nice Bristol references, and some more Buzz tributes just to the right of the picture.
