Graft Workshop, Watercress Road, Bristol, July 2018

1613. Watercress Road

This is a great example of how a small piece of Street art can really brighten up a place and fit in well with the surroundings. I took the picture a week or so ago and couldn’t remember the name of the street (and what a name!), so I went on to Google maps and found it. I did a little streetview tour and saw that this wall had not been in great repair and certainly wasn’t something that you would take a second look at.

So well done to the owner for repairing the wall commissioning the excellent Graft Workshop to create this magnificent piece which faces the St Werburghs City Farm. I guess the goat was chosen to reflect the City Farm. The piece itself is beautifully done and reminds me a little of the work of Oze Arv who came to Bristol for Upfest 2017. I’d like to find more street work from this fine collective.

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.
