Silent Hobo, St Werburghs, Bristol, June 2018

1566. St Werburghs tunnel (25)

In a lovely sunny spot at the southern end of the tunnel in St Werburghs, this recent character by Silent Hobo has come to join one of his previous youths. Silent Hobo has been busy on the streets again and his work seems to come in fits and starts.

The contemporary young woman is dressed in ripped jeans and yellow sneakers and her vest sports the word ‘legendary’. In all his works, Silent Hobo conveys enormous warmth and empathy for young people, but I feel that there is an element of sadness in his characters – maybe it is their closed eyes and slightly downcast demeanour.

Looking forward to posting a recent commission by Silent Hobo in Hotwell road fairly soon.

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.
