A theme used by many street artists is the depiction of a monster – I guess this is so that they can be creative and use their imagination as there is no template for a monster really.Another common theme is to seen a character using a spray can. This monster piece by NEVERGIVEUP in The Bearpit brings these themes nicely together.
NEVERGIVEUP is taking over the mantle of most prolific artist in Bristol and is varying his style, which started with his customary bunnies. He is a versatile and young artist and I’m sure will develop his styles over time. He is certainly fearless in spraying walls not previously sprayed, but is respectful of other’s work too.
The Bearpit has had a little bit of a renaissance since Upfest, and there are som decent works there, in amongst the throw ups and tagging.
