Of all the artists to visit Bristol for Upfest 2016, Feoflip probably had the greatest overall impact on the city. Not only did he create a beautiful piece for the festival, but he produced a further seven or eight pieces dotted around the city, many of which are still there.
A truly talented artist and one who seems to know his own mind, he creates scenes that appear to be part mechanical and part organic, and his style appears to draw on artists such as Max Ernst and others of the period.
This piece appears to be a bulldog, but look carefully and it is created from an old boogie box, and the dog is wearing a sport helmet (American football?) The whole thing is quirky and peculiar. The piece is enhanced, in my view, by being sprayed in single grey tones on a blue background. One of the best pieces in Bristol at the moment.
His return for Upfest 2017 would be the best thing…I’ll keep my fingers and everything else crossed.
