Inkie, Chapter Street, Bristol, May 2019

2225. Chapter Street (2)

Other than promotional hoardings outside the Full Moon pub in Stokes Croft, I don’t think I have seen an Inkie piece since Upfest last July, so it was great to see this one on a Construction site deep in St Pauls. As one of the godfathers of Bristol street art, it is a pity that we don’t get to see as much of his work as we would probably like to, but I suppose the old maxim ‘treat em mean to keep em keen’ might apply here.

This piece is a blaze of colour, spelling out INKIE. Interestingly there isn’t any 3D effect on the lettering, which I would usually asssociate with his writing. I don’t think that this is the best piece I have seen from Inkie, but the bar is so very high, and I imagine that this was probably a ‘quick one’. Always great to find anything by this celebrated artist.

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.
