2372. St George skate park (2)

The Monday Club is really establishing itself as a tour de force in the Bristol street art scene. It is a crew made up of several artists who will get together on a Monday and paint somewhere in Bristol. This time it was the turn of Conrico, Nevergiveup and Nightwayss.

I am loving what Conrico is bringing to Bristol and his pieces tend to be comical and light-hearted. His painting style is interesting and less easily described although it all looks rather illustration derived – I’ll bet he can draw well. I haven’t seen many of his pieces yet, and one or two have eluded me altogether, but this one is a beauty.

I think I have said everything I need to say about Nevergiveup’s rabbits and they even turn up in collaborations like this one. Always welcome and always fun.

The Jewel in the crown of this little collaboration on a ramp in St George skate park is the monkey in the moon with a banana by Nightwayss. I love this monkey, and rather like Conrico’s piece, it is painted in an illustrative style, typified by the hatchings in the arm and leg. So full of cheek, humour and fun. Long live the Monday Club.

  1. These are fantastic Scooj and I’m so pleased I found them. Thanks for sharing. I haven’t checked out my reader for awhile but it’s a cold Friday night and the heater’s on and my husband is watching a movie. BTW I didn’t even notice the start of the movie and whatever’s going on now makes no sense whatsoever. The monkey in the moon with a banana is hilarious and rather captivating.
    Best wishes,

    1. Hi Rowena, I’m glad you had a chance to check out this particular piece. I agree with your thoughts on the monkey. I struggle to keep up with my reader too from time to time. Busy lives!

      1. Yes and lives going in many directions or to use a different analogy, different hats. I have time to keep up with people at the moment, which is a bit of a luxury. I’m need to start looking for some part time work.
