Andy Council, Avonvale Road, Bristol, February 2020

2780. Avonvale Road (1)

Thank you Banksy for your recent visit to Bristol. I thank you because your piece drew me to an area of Bristol that I have not been to before, which is a bit of a crime for a street art hunter because Barton Hill was where a great many Bristol graffiti artists cut their teeth. Only a matter of a hundred meters or so north of the Banksy Valentine piece is a long wall on the boundary wall of Netham Park where I found this old piece by Andy Council.

The stegasaurus-type dinosaur composed of buildings and trees is typical of the incredible work that Andy Council has become famous for. I can’t believe that I didn’t know about this piece, but that is what makes doing what I do so much fun – surprises lurk around every corner. A very satisfying find on a red-letter day.

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.
