521. Wapping Wharf (1)

Wapping Wharf is a new Harbourside development in Bristol that includes residential flats and some rather upmarket restaurants and food outlets. At one end there is a rather unusual block of ‘container’ shops and cafes called @cargo.  It would appear that at one end of this block there is a public art space, and the first piece to be displayed there is this beautiful work by Gemma Compton.

Gemma is no stranger to the street art scene in Bristol and indeed her artworks were the promotional face of Upfest 2016. You may recall the post I wrote about her lovely work on the front of the Upfest shop in North Street. This work carries the same characteristic blue colours (reminiscent of spode pottery) she uses and is adorned with flowers and butterflies. A lovely piece, and just look at those drips.
