Cheo, Gas Ferry Road, Bristol, November 2019

2616. Gas Ferry Road

It took me a little while to find this magnificent piece by Cheo. I knew roughly the area where it had been painted but because it was a new wall in a light industrial area I had to use my intuition to find it. The mural is on a building near the Aardman productions (Wallace and Gromit) Bristol office and was painted to celebrate thirty years of this hapless pair.

Cheo has shown his extraordinary skill by incorporating the extractor fans on the side of the building into the piece as an integral part of the ‘celebrate o’tron’. You also have to love the idea of old socks feeding the machinery. Cheo has produced many works in Bristol in partnership with Aardman many of which are still alive and kicking.

There is something very wholesome about this piece and represents the Wallace and Gromit brand beautifully and responsibly. Definitely one for all the family to enjoy, and just around the corner from the SS Great Britain.
