Conrico and Tasha Bee, New Stadium Road, Bristol, July 2019

2325. New Stadium Road (16)

A beautiful aquatic scene and collaboration by Bristol fave Tasha Bee (keeping it colourful) and new boy on the block (to me at least) Conrico. For a while now, a loose aggregation or crew has been in existence called ‘the Monday Club’. At its heart is Tasha Bee, but other members include Soap, Zake, Face 1st and now Conrico amongst others. This is a Monday Club production.

I have only seen two pieces by Conrico to date (the other one to follow soon) and what I have seen so far I like. There is a great story going on in this piece with the diver who seems to be making away with some pearls or at least looks like he is up to no good. I like the spray cans in his helmet and the manic fish adding to a sense of mischief.

The other half of the collaboration, by Tasha Bee, has a mermaid who seems to be equally obsessed with the Pearl she has in her left hand. And just next to her is the shell from which the pearls are coming. Speaking as a marine biologist I ought to point out a few inaccuracies in the piece, but speaking as an admirer of art I think this is a wonderful collaboration in the story-telling style.
