Mr Draws, Upfest, Bristol, July 2016

489. Upfest 2016 (63)

Mr Draws is a busy Bristol street artist who specialises in spraying colourful impressionist mountain ranges. His style is simple and at times appears to be naive, but it is far from that, and some of his pieces demonstrate his sophistication.

Mr Draws has been spraying a lot since Upfest in July, but I haven’t been out as much as I would like recently and so have missed lots of his work. I know he is not everyone’s cup of tea, but like so many of the Bristol street artists his work has grown on me. I also like it that in amongst all the international ‘big name’ artists invited to Upfest, there are dozens of local artists upholding the Bristol graffiti tradition. Good work.

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.
