772. The Bearpit (67)

Tuesday 2 May was something of a special day. I took a lunchtime walk to Dean Lane, and was lucky enough to come across an artist spraying a large buck-toothed bunny. This was a significant moment, because I have taken several pictures of this bunny about the place, but never posted it because I didn’t know who it was by.

This was my chance – I asked if he minded if I took a picture and I had a chat with him. Turns out he is Hire (pronounced ‘he ray’) and comes from Poland and sometimes paints with Laic217 (who he told me is also Polish). So now the piece I recently posted by the pair of them makes more sense.

So here is a toothy bunny from a little while ago from The Bearpit, and guess what…it is by Hire. You would not believe how many google searches I have done for street art bunnies/rabbits/graffiti/buck-teeth/scary and so on. Nothing, not a dicky bird. Anyhow it doesn’t matter anymore.

Feast your eyes on this bunny and enjoy. There will be more dredged from the archives soon.

    1. It is the middle of the large roundabout outside the Broadmead department stores, which joins the M32 with the centre and the bus station and the a38 north. It is a sunken island, full of skateboarders, homeless people, shoppers, Bohemian types, occasional police, evangelists and street artists…an urban mix.
