2079. Jessop Underpass (2)

There is one artist in Bristol whose work is guaranteed to bring a splash of colour and an interesting perspective and that is Tom Miller. This piece has appeared recently opposite the Riverside Garden Centre and is a bit of a stunner.

There is a bicycle theme on the left hand side which is full of movement and which appears to metamorphosise into a fairly typical abstract explosion of colour and form the further to the right of the piece you look.

The transition is worked so skilfully and perhaps exaggerated by splitting the piece up into three sections (I had to do this because the fence where it is painted is so long.

Ever since I first saw my first Tom Miller piece I have marvelled at his extraordinary talent and how he has brought his unique brand of surreal fine art into the street. In my view an artistic genius.

  1. I had a chat with him whilst he was finishing this piece and said I had taken a photo of it when I thought it was already finished and then it suddenly started to hail violently just as I was stood in the centre of the road . . .
    He told me that you could always tell when he had finished a piece as he always signed it . . .

    Now I have looked closely for a signature and just can’t see one so I reckon this is either still unfinished or far more likely he actually forgot to sign his work . . . 😉
