Tuco, Upfest, Bristol, July 2016

353. Upfest 2016 (12)

This is an interesting piece by one of the more enigmatic Bristol street artists, Tuco. He is both an artist and an appreciator of the art of others and his Instagram feed is full of pieces by other artists. He likes to paint with green, and for Upfest he created a great image of Gilbert – a children’s television character from a programme called ‘Get Fresh‘ from the mid 1980s. It is interesting that he started to paint in 1984 and appearsĀ still to be influenced in his work by the period.

I rather like his Instagram profile that reads ‘Some of the stuff is by me. Some of the stuff isn’t by me. I like sausages and booze. You can like want you want! I’M FRIGHTENED OF BATS. #graffiti‘. I will be looking out for more of his work…if I can find it.

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.
