Well now, this is something really different and most welcome in Dean Lane. This piece is by a visiting artist currently living and working in London, Ruki Chuki. She is originally from New York and started painting the streets in 2007, so has had plenty of time to refuine her technique and style.

It is her style that is so attractive and so very different from anything we usually get to see in Bristol. The picture of a couple in a tight embrace is also an unusual theme for the Bristol scene and is something we could probably do a little bit more of – spreading the love.

When you get to see the work of visitors I feel it is a real privilege, and one we should embrace. I guess the epitome of welcoming visiting street artists will come at the end of the month with the arrival of Upfest 2018. It really isn’t too long to wait, but long enough for the weather to turn. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed it isn’t as wet as last year.

The line up for Upfest 2018 makes eye-watering reading. Getting very excited.

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.
