596. Upfest 2016 (90)

I really like this beautifully designed piece of work from Mike Powis. The colours work well and there is something really pleasing about the subject – to me at least. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Powis is an illustrator and graphic designer, and this comes across loud and clear in this work.

I couldn’t find out much about him, but his Upfest biography (autobiography) reads: ‘Illustrator, graphic designer, hunter gatherer, gas mask vandal, excessive coffee drinker, mural creator, brush pen ninja, workshop director, marker mass murderer, terrible short story writer…’  That probably sums it up.

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. could be, and there are some similarities with Face F1st, although I doubt the to have met or are even aware of each other. One thing I am learning is how little street artists seem to know about other street artists.
