Alex Lucas, Charlotte Street, Bristol, November 2017

1317. Charlotte Street (2)

The incredible Alex Lucas is pretty well known across Bristol, if not by name then by recognition of her artwork. She seems to have her work all over the place and her commissions definitely brighten up the city.

From shop fronts to indoor murals, barely a day goes by when Bristolians aren’t touched in some way by her work. This is a case in point, the Bluebird Tea Company half way up Park Street.

This isn’t some corporate makeover, but rather a beautifully bespoke design for a particular kind of outlet. It is a one-off, and a glance at the detail in the piece demonstrates this.

Is this street art? some may ask. In my view, absolutely it is. Just because it is paid-for work doesn’t make it any less legitimate. It isn’t edgy or covert, but it is representative of one end of the huge spectrum of public street/graffiti art available to all in Bristol.

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.
