Mind Control, Upfest, Bristol, July 2017

985. Upfest 2017 (38)

This great piece which was located at The Rising Sun pub, is by Mind Control who was probably the youngest artist at Upfest this year at a youthful 16. He has been spraying since he was 12 and has already found himself on the festival circuit. A precocious talent indeed, and one to look out for.

Before Upfest this year he was interviewed by Auntie G,  you can read what he says on her excellent blog here. The piece itself is ambitious and captivating. I’m not sure I would have guessed it was by a young artist when I first saw it, but now I’m in posession of the facts it does have a naive quality to it. I look forward to seeing more work from Mind Control and hope he returns to Bristol soon.

  1. He painted @ City of Colours 2014 & 2016 – this (from 2014) is from his instgram page https://www.instagram.com/p/sslb-Ir2v2/?taken-by=mindcontrolaidan. I’ve got a few of his from Kidderminster / Burnham on Sea & last year’s CofC. He’s done a few others in Cheltenham & Wokingham but I removed them from my blog because he’s moved on since then … https://urbanartalacarte.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Artist%3A%20Mind%20Control
