Silent Hobo, Chapter Street, Bristol, March 2016

144. Chapter Street

I took a long walk home after a very tricky meeting yesterday, and cheered myself up with taking a new route through St Pauls. My reward was this superb mural by Silent Hobo.

This area of St Pauls really is Silent Hobo’s heartland, and barely a street goes by without one of his pieces brightening up a wall or shop front.

This work, I think, is my favourite. Not only is it beautifully executed, but the subject material is a fabulous reflection of what Bristol is all about. Some artists portray Bristol with architectural landmarks; Silent Hobo tends to present Bristol through cultural references.

For the more observant among you, there is also a beautiful tribute to Mibsy.

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.
