Although Face F1st’s work is, on first viewing, not as spectacular or striking as some of the other local street artists, there is something very cultured and empathetic about his work. The familiar technique of incorporating a girl’s portrait into the word ‘face’ combined with the soft colour schemes marks out Face F1st’s pieces as something rather special.
Most of his spraying is done in the Stokes Croft area of the city, and on the corner with Ashley Road in particular. This is a relatively recent piece on a hoarding where the turnover or work can be very high. This one has survived a few weeks, and at the time of writing was still there. Always good to find his works.
These photographs are a little ropey due to the dappled sunlight on the piece at the time of taking them.
