2530. Lower Approach Road (7)

This is one of two new murals near the entrance of Temple Meads station that were commissioned to mark World Mental Health Day and the associated football campaign #onyourside. Beautifully painted by Kin Dose (Nick Harvey) this piece depicts a Bristol Rovers player (one of two football league teams in Bristol) and is a rather unusual commission which Kin Dose has executed brilliantly.

Obviously there was some working together with (spoiler alert) Jody, who painted the other mural, because they both have a similar look and feel about them. What this demonstrates is the artist’s extraordinary talent for working to a brief and turning out something exceptional. We are lucky to have Kin Dose decorating our streets which he has done with such vigour over the past year or two.

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.
