Sirens, Leonard Lane, Bristol, June 2017

846. Leonard Lane (11)

Sirens is getting rather busy all over Bristol at the moment, and here is a recent piece that he produced in my favourite Bristol backwater, Leonard Lane. What to make of this piece?

What Sirens has done here is create a green space in a sea of messy graffiti. I believe it is metaphorical as well as physical and therefore has a double impact. Even more unexpected is that this is, so he says on his Instagram account, a six layered stencil and took a long time to do.

The abstract nature of this work is at complete odds with the chaos that surrounds it. A small green window of tranquility. It has an impressive impact on those that venture down this ancient lane.

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.

  1. Of course everyone sees a piece of art differently. But Stephen, like Sister Wendy you add great insight and interpretations to the pieces you post. Much appreciated. In truth my vision is so poor that i would miss many of the tiny nuances if it were not for your commentary. Thank you.
