DNT, Hepburn Road, Bristol, August 2017

1267. Hepburn Road (5)

I walk past this alley way most days, but it was not until recently that I learned that it was the centre of the Bristol drugs trade and after dark a dangerous and depraved place. I have been walking the alley for a couple of years, taking pictures, and although it was rather grubby, I never realised the extent of the drug dealing that was happening there.

Thankfully it has been cleaned up a bit, but the wonderful graffiti continues. This piece is by DNT who actually runs the Matchbox Gallery on the other side of Stokes Croft. It is an interesting piece because I have seen it replicated in other spots. I don’t know the background to it, but it is a bright and colourful piece that actually reminds me of the 1980s – I don’t expect to be thanked for that. Nice work from DNT.

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.
