As you drive towards Stokes Croft from The Bearpit roundabout you see, from quite a distance, this iconic wall with its rather old-looking Stinkfish piece on it. The bottom of the wall below the yellow and black portrait tends to be in relatively constant flux.
I am not sure who sprayed the Stokes Croft writing, but I have a hunch that it might have been Sesk. There are a whole bunch of graffiti writers in Bristol capable of creating this work. The characters on the left hand side of the piece are by Mr Sleven and represent members of the community some might recognise. They are holding up a banner “Make Bristol shit again, got drugs?” but I am not too sure what point Mr Sleven is trying to make.
The characters themselves are nicely done, and I am particularly drawn to how he has incorporated their eyes. The wall is now bright and colourful once again, but now I think it is the turn of the upper part of this wall to get a special makeover.
