Another lunchtime walk, and another chance meeting with one of Bristol’s graffiti artists. It’s the sunny weather you know, it brings them out onto the streets. When I took these pictures, I wasn’t sure who the artist was, and he was being rather evasive about revealing his name to me. I didn’t pursue the matter.
We had a good conversation about the rules of spraying and about taggers and the merits of legal and non-legal walls. All interesting stuff really. Sadly I didn’t get a finished version of the piece, but it wasn’t too different from this picture (UPDATE – I went back a couple of days ago and got a shot of the final work). Turns out the artist (who posted his work on Instagram) is Rusk who is one of the RAW (Read and Weep) crew. I have featured a piece by Rusk once before, and have others yet to publish. A really nice guy and central figure in Bristol’s graffiti art scene.
