Gamma Gallery, Upfest, Bristol, July 2016

780. Upfest 2016 (124)

Located slightly off the main drag of Upfest is this rather large wall with an advertising hoarding inconveniently taking up the top left hand corner. In 2015, the wall was admirably sprayed by Snub23. This year it was the turn of Gamma Gallery.

I’m afraid I don’t quite get the concept of Gamma Gallery. I’m not sure if it is one person or a collective, but irrespective of that I think this is a magnificent piece. There is something about the pigeons that I really like.

For the observant of you out there…I took this picture a short while after Upfest, and the picture on the bill board is different from the one at the time it was painted. I wish I knew more about this piece, but the Interweb wasn’t very fruitful, so I am just enjoying it for what it is.

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.
