Tom Miller, The Bearpit, Bristol, April 2018

1437. The Bearpit (133)

I believe this to be the best piece I have seen this year, and one of the best that the artist, Tom Miller, has produced to date. This classy work was painted for a Spring paint jam on 14 April 2018 and dominates all around it.

This most most eye-catching and vibrant of pieces, illuminates the tunnel and brings a touch of fine art to the people who pass through it. So typical of Miller’s work, there is a face, disfigured and distorted by colour stretching out of it. A scene of serenity and torture compressed into one space. His surreal and dream-like pieces never cease to amaze me, but this one really trumps the rest.

Tom Miller has been busy this Spring, a trend which I hope spans into the summer and beyond. This piece is so good.

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.

    1. He is an outstanding young talent, training as a fine artist – he has already had a couple of exhibitions in Bristol, but it is his unique street work that really turns heads. I predict he will go a long way, wither in the fine art world or street art, or maybe both. Type ‘Natural Adventures Tom Miller’ into Google and get my full set of posts on him.
