Silent Hobo, M32 Spot, Bristol, October 2018

1798. M32 Spot (29)

I can honestly say that the artist who most represents Bristol and its youth culture for me is Silent Hobo. With consummate ease he seems to be able to switch seamlessly between commissions and ‘legal’ walls, between indoor and outdoor work, all the time seeing the good in others.

This wonderful column piece is one of a few that he has done at the M32 spot, an area where skaters like to gather when it is raining, and where DIY Bristol have created a great skating area under cover of the motorway. This youth reflects all those who gather here, clutching his beat box (what I would call a boogie box) and sporting a beanie. I love the serenity of the piece.

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.
