It has been a very long time since I last posted a piece by Thelocknessmonster mainly because, if I’m completely honest, I don’t think his work has been as good recently as it has been in the past. This piece down on the M32 roundabout is the first that I have really liked in ages and in my view, he seems to be getting his mojo back.
The style is really unusual, composed mainly of cartoon-like line drawings that come together to tell a story although it is often difficult to be sure what the story is. Thelocknessmonster will often use motifs and symbols such as statues and shapes. He signs his pieces with the word ‘Egotist’ and often includes ‘Splab Lads’ or ‘Splab Gang’ which I think is a crew, but I don’t yet know any other members of the crew.
Always imaginative and creative and deliberately different Thelocknessmonster occupies his own special place in the Bristol street art scene.
