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.

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.
Thank you for the kind words. I am never quite sure if the words are read. nice to know they are.
Au contraire Monsieur – remember a picture is worth a thousand words. (My POV)
It looks like an aerial view of swamp land or Oscar the Grouch.
