1406. Newfoundland Street (3)

With collaborations in Bristol, there are few that are finer than those between Gemma Compton and Copyright. This particular mural is a triumph, and for me, what makes it really special is the backdrop of blue and white tiles. This is a gorgeous piece, and is at great odds with the busy road and traffic adjacent to it. An oasis of calm.

The central stencil of a girl with butterfly wings is by Copyright and provides a focal point in the centre of the piece with the warm colours contrasting with the blue and white surrounds.

I think that Gemma Compton may have done the girls wings, and certainly the other blue and white butterflies that adorn the mural.

As for the blue and white tiles, I am not too sure who did these, but I have seen tiles feature a lot in Gemma’s work before. I suspect they both worked on these. The overall effect is stunning, and I hope that we see more of these collaborations in 2018.

  1. It is very effective and I like the geometric lines. First thing I thought was that this would look lovely in a bathroom – but it would have to be an enormous bathroom! Hmm I wouldn’t mind owning That house! 😀
