NEVERGIVEUP, Jacob's Wells Road, Bristol, February 2018

1342. Jacob’s Wells Road

I include this piece because it demonstrates that there is ‘graffiti creep’ happening in Bristol and where graffiti goes, so the art tends to follow. This wall is on a stairway up to Brandon Hill park and until relatively recently there was no graffiti here, but as the number of graffiti/street artists grow, and the number of walls/hoardings are lost, so the search for new walls begins. A natural succession, often brought about by gentrification.

The bunny is easily recognisable as the handy work of NEVERGIVEUP, who seems to be a bit of a pioneer when it comes to finding new spots to spray. He is unafraid and adventurous which is amazing as he has only been in Bristol a little over a year. The Rabbit is nicely executed, as you would expect, but it is the location that makes this piece stand out.

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.
