693. St Andrews Road (2)

On a walk to the Montpelier area of Bristol a little while back, I came across this interesting piece by Fiver aka Henry Barnes. It doesn’t get much more Bristol than spraying a Wallace and Gromit piece on your garage door as a nice way to encourage people not to park in front of it.

There is no doubting Fiver’s skill, and this is a nice piece. However, he is another Bristol artist who appears to have been under my radar, and this is the first of his pieces that I have featured. I think he tends to do a lot of work using existing characters from cartoons. On doing a bit of research, I found this nice article about how he proposed to his girlfriend in front of a piece he sprayed of her favourite characters. All good.

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. I was in Montpelier today. I must have passed within spitting distance but didn’t know it was there. I’ll put it on the list for the next Bristol visit. I went to the station to get some more pic of the Silent Hobo mural as the ones I took a few years ago were pretty crap.

    1. Yes, this Road is a bit out of the way, and not on the usual street art circuit. The mural in Montpelier Station is great. I still haven’t posted about it yet, but will do one day.
