901. Lower Approach Road (6)

Well this really is a magnificent and busy piece by SPZero76. The piece incorporates a train and track, which is entirely fitting to the I. K. Brunel inspired Temple Meads station, adjacent to this hoarding.

Somehow, by using limited colours on a black background, SPZero76 has created the effect of an etching, or at least that is how it looks to me. He uses the blue and purple combination a lot in his work – maybe he got a job lot of these colours.

So what else have we got going on? He has a dog puking up, I’m not certain why, and just to emphasise the point he writes ‘PUKE’ so that we are sure. There is a biker and the word ‘zoom’. Also SPZero has managed to incorporate the crew Lost Souls on neon lights on the buildings.

On the right hand end of the piece there is a lady taking a bath in the last carriage of the train which she appears to be sharing with an octopus and rubber duck. I really have no idea what is going on, but it is a great tribute to the crazy workings of SPZero76’s mind.

If you are at Temple Meads station and have a few moments to kill, it is well worth dropping down to the hoardings just to the left of the car park (as you leave the station). There are six wonderful pieces from six of Bristol’s great artists.

      1. The Japanese one was in The Rising Sun and I asked several of the artists there and no one seemed to know. Whoever it was didn’t hang about to chat. I haven’t seen either in any of the Upfest searches. I think the other one was at the church

      2. Looks like I might have to post more per day, and shorten the text, just to fit everything in. For example, I took pictures of at least 5 new pieces this morning…how can I keep up?

      3. It’ll get worse for me – coming up: Upfest, another London Trip 12 Aug / Weston super Mare the same weekend but I’ll shoot down Monday to get pix, paint jams in Birmingham, Kidderminster & Cheltenham thereafter. You might want to think about shooting up to Cheltenham on 9th Sept should be good. I think 70 or so artists booked. Being organized by Dice67
