Nightwayss, Wilder Street, Bristol, May 2019

2263. Wilder Street (33)

One of the highlights of 2019 has been the emergence of Nightwayss on the streets of Bristol. Although he sprayed a couple of pieces last year he has really made his monkey mark all over Bristol this year and has become something of a regular on Natural Adventures.

I was fortunate enough to meet Nightwayss for the second time when he was painting this together with Laic217 (you can see laic217’s influence in the smiley faces), and he was happy to stop for a brief chat. Of course there is a monkey, sitting in a rather thoughtful pose, but it is the incredible effect Nightwayss has achieved in the face that intrigues me most, it almost looks like a chalk sketch rather than spray paint.

This was one of my favourite and most satisfying encounters this year so far, seeing two very different artists painting together and having fun. These guys really enjoy what they do and have the added joy of being really good at it.

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.
