Cheo, Raleigh Road Bristol, June 2017

848. Raleigh Road, Vector (13)

It has been really interesting to see this ‘Bee-Boy’ come to life. He began as a sketch in Cheo’s black book which he posted on Instagram with the hashtags #cheo, #bee, #sketch and #fart. The sketches became more detailed until he finally sprayed the piece in Raleigh Road.

Cheo seems to have had a love-hate relationship with Bee-Boy and it has been interesting to see the development of the character. Even after he had completed the work, he went on to produce a full colour sketch, for which he apologised, and even after that he committed the ‘little twat’ to canvass.

Whatever cheo thinks of it, I and many, many others love this little character – edgy, mischievous and comical.
