Andy Council, Chalks Road, Bristol, July 2017

1121. Chalks Road

This lovely piece by Andy Council is in South East Bristol, in an area I don’t pass through too often, except when visiting the reptile shop to get supplies for my daughter’s chameleon, George. I managed to stop and take these pictures on one such trip.

I think the piece has has been around since early 2017, and you can see from the foliage growing in front of it that it was not recent even in July when I took the picture. As with all Andy Council’s pieces, there are numerous references to Bristol and the locality in the buildings that make up this ram with a fish tail, which I recognise as the star sign representation of Capricorn, being one myself. It is always good to see the iconic Clifton suspension bridge included in street art.

I like this piece very much. It is unusual and incorporates some interesting colour selections commensurate with the two halves of the beast. Well thought out and as always, well executed.

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.
