It seems that every artist I write about at the moment is accompanied with the phrase that ‘xxx has been very busy lately’. I don’t quite know what’s going on, but there seems to have been an awakening in Bristol over the last six months or so, and in the four or so years that I have been doing this, I have not quite known a winter so busy. Mr Sleven has also been rather busy and this fine wall in Moon Street is one of several recent pieces.
This is a fine piece of character writing, with the artist’s name interrupted by a girl in a facemask instead of the letter ‘V’. His style is somewhat different from some of the other writers here, who tend to work with much cleaner lines and solid fills, such as Cheo or Soker. Mr Sleven’s work is more organic perhaps, but is no less fantastic for it.
Showing off my ignorance, I’m not too sure what the icon on the woman’s mask is, but it sets the whole thing off nicely. Great to see something like this in Moon Street.
