Rumbl, Upfest, Bristol, July 2016

884. Upfest 2016 (151)

Rumbl is another street artist from the rather large Dutch contingent that attended Upfest 2016. I must confess that when I first saw this piece I didn’t much like it. Now that I have looked a little more carefully and researched some of his other work, I think I get it now, and actually rather like it.

This is a perfect Upfest wall and he has made a good job of it. He has a love of American illustration of the 1960s and you can see that clearly in this work. The stylised horse and cowboy boots…sort of Woody meets Lucky Luke meets John Wayne. I do now rather like this – pity it took me so long to post it.

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.
