The Paintsmiths, Jamaica Street, Bristol, October 2016

466. Jamaica Street (8)

The Paintsmiths tend to paint commissions, perhaps the most memorable recent example being the Donald Trump Boris Johnson kiss. Grotesque.  This time they have created something altogether more palatable.

This tribute to Prince is actually a promotion piece for a concert at Colston Hall to celebrate the music and life of the great artist and is probably sponsored by the British Film Industry Black Star season.

The piece itself is flawless and really uses the space of the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft Outdoor Gallery to its max. The Paintsmiths never disappoint.

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. Paisley Park is just a 30 minute drive from my home. The city where it’s located granted a permit just yesterday to make and operate it as a museum.
