Rowdy, Bedminster, Bristol, July 2017

953. Bedminster

This is a fabulous Rowdy piece which is not only bright and vibrant but is also a tribute/protest piece for the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire disaster. The crocodiles are festooned with flowers and there is a heart in the middle of the piece.

This piece demonstrates the reach of the tragedy in London, and I guess the whole wretched thing highlights a world we live in where profit and margins trump regulation and safety. Pitiful really. It is the same with environmental regulation – there are some that say it gets in the way of business and prosperity – try being prosperous when you have buggered up the environment, the place that provides our food, our water, our very life. Red tape is there for a reason, to keep us safe, and if it suppresses profit, then so be it. Right I’ll stop there before I go off on one.

I don’t generally get to see too much street work from Rowdy, so it is always nice when one crops up.

One thought on “953. Bedminster”

  1. Really bright piece that reflects the colors of a fire and the tragedy. This fire was followed by one in Honolulu (no smoke detectors and second such fire in two years), and Dubai (same tower which was on fire last year.) Agree with you.–totally!
