I missed by a week the opportunity of seeing Voyder at work, when he sprayed this excellent paint brush stroke/neon light Bristol welcome just by the side of Temple Meads station.

As I have said in a recent post about Voyder’s work, I think he is really peaking at the moment. Everything he produces is of such a high quality it is difficult to know how he can turn up a gear. Will he plateau or start to move into something new? It matters not really, It is simply a privilege to be able to see his works regularly, and for free on the streets of this great city. Bristol.

Recently, I have posted quite a few pieces from the magnificent Georgie (artist), including a wonderful Michael Caine portrait in The Bearpit. However, when I took these pictures back in July 2016, I don’t think I really knew too much about her.

This is a fabulous stencil, impactful and eye-grabbing. The contrast of the grayscale stencil and the bright and colourful background work really effectively for the subject matter of the piece. I am too lazy to find out what it is called, but it seems many of her works have an obvious name. I like this very much.

I met Annika Wilkinson, who paints under the name of Annika Pixie, for the first time a couple of weeks ago at a local festival in Bedminster. She is a lovely, chatty and talented artist who is from Sweden (although I have to confess I thought her accent Scottish) but is now based in Bristol.

She tends to paint portraits that have a mysticism or dreaminess about them, which I rather like. I have found several of her pieces around Bristol, so it was lovely to finally meet her. Great news is that she will be back at this year’s festival,. which is easy for her, as she lives very locally.
