Bill Giles, Upfest, Bristol, July 2017

929. Upfest 2017 (7)

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.

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.
