This is a beautifully worked piece from Bristol-based Bill Giles, an illustrator and designer who occasionally takes to the walls. He specialises in creating grotesque monsters whose flesh melts away and his design work is finely detailed. This monster seems to reflect much more the uplifting atmosphere of Upfest with its bright colours and sunglasses, an altogether fun piece.
Bill Giles is part of an artist collective called ‘Cretin‘ based in Bristol that specialises in designs and illustrations of monsters. Membership of Cretin includes SPZero76, Paul Roberts (Monsters), Loch Ness and Dom Williams – there’s a lot of talent there.
