Ments, Upper York Street, Bristol, October 2019

2619. Upper York Street (19)

A stunning piece by Ments on a great wall. This whole area is being redeveloped, and I fear that the wall may have already been demolished, which is a real pity because it has hosted some really spectacular art. The reduction in available walls to paint in this area is going to be a bit of a challenge for street/graffiti artists and is a pattern being replicated all over the city. It will be interesting to see if new areas become popular painting spots in the future.

The piece is so very typical of Ments’ organic style, and this one has a molten metallic feel about it. The letters spell out MENTS (although the T looks like it is missing). I also get a slight sense of the surrealist Yves Tanguy here, or at least the meltinng shapes and shadows reminnd me of his work. A classy and unusual piece.

    Hey Scooj,

    Apologies, these are not very good shots, it’s quite a difficult piece to shoot, the ramp and balustrade get in the way! You’ll probably want to go and shoot it yourself, as it’s a working office, expect the shutters to be up and parts of the painting missing In Office hours. T is a stunning piece though, note the colour palette matches the sites colourful branding!

    All the best,
    John
