Here is another piece from earlier this year by Flava136 in Dean Lane. He is an artist I have been aware of for a fair while, but the infrequent bursts of activity have rather predicated against posting his pieces regularly, especially if these pulses coincide with lots of other new pieces.

Flava136’s monsters share some characteristics with those of other artists such as Nol and Nevergiveup, and I guess this all boils down to adopted techniques, such as long tongues or white spots on the eyes.

I feel I have missed a trick a bit by not getting to understand more about Flava136 and his work, but have plenty more to look forward to I’m sure.

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.

  1. He’s a Gloucester boy and was just that when he started (14 or 15 ish when I first came across his work in Cheltenham 7 Gloucester) That character is his trademark and I think it’s probably what he did as his first piece of street art (or a variation thereof). I have seen a few others in Bristol over the years. There was one quite high up on Stokes Croft – not sure if it’s still there or not. He does some good stuff and his excellent Spiderman is still going strong @ Gloucester skate park (I think – I haven’t been there for a while!)
