344. Upfest 2016 (3)

One of the first pieces I saw that had already been completed by the time I arived on Saturday, was this fine and controversial work by Pegasus.

It is highly accomplished stencil work that one expects from Pegasus and the content of his work is often edgy and possibly uncomfortable for some. I imagine that any work representing Mother Teresa (a Saint) is going to be tricky.

I love this piece. It is quite shocking and at the same time so beautifully put together. I think this might be his first visit since his Trump/Hitler conflation in Greville Road, back in April 2016…another controversial one.

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. His work has changed for the better. I am not religious and pretty hard to offend. According to a biography Mother Teresa was not a very nice person. Also charity is a very dicey thing. Think he nailed it.
