2098. The Bearpit (179)

Right, there is some stuff going on in this piece by Bristol artist HAKA, but I’m not too sure I can enlighten you too much. Obviously there is a Banksy reference here to his flower thrower piece, but instead of flowers there is a baguette. I am assuming that this peaceful rioter is a member of the French movement Gilet Jaune. It is good to see a piece that plays with contemporary cultural influences.

I got lucky when I took these pictures, because there were some council workers doing something with the drain immediately in front of the piece. The man in the picture looks as if he has just stepped out of the wall. He needs to be careful he doesn’t get bonked on the head with a baguette. Nice work from Haka who has been very busy lately.

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.
