Thursday doors – 19 March 2020

Doors 98 – a couple of Bristol doors

It has been almost exactly a month since I last posted a Thursday doors entry on Natural Adventures. It has been busy at work lately and I have felt the squeeze a little.

These are two doors I recently photographed. Neither of them particulsrly attractive, but they more than make up for it in Character.

The first door is on the side of the amazing Mickleburgh musical instruments shop in Stokes Croft – we actually bought our piano there and it is an incredible place, almost Dickensian in its demeanour.

The door has been tagged, bombed and slapped (with stickers). I can make out a tag by 2HOT and a slap from Ryder. I’m not too sure who the face and ‘ou est le poulet’ is by but the whole thing adds up to a cornucopia of street graffiti so commonj in this area.

The second door is a little different and looks like it has seen a whole ton of action over the years. Much used but not much loved. It appears to have a thick layer of grease or something dripped on it, but the thing that really makes stand out for me is the extractor fan… the door would not be complete without it.

More doors coming soon.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors and you ought to take a look at the Norm 2.0 blog – the originator of Thursday Doors where there are links to yet more doors in the comments section at the end.

    1. I could write an essay to answer this fully. On a door like this, anything goes, all the art is tagging, graffiti and throw ups (quick, crudely painted works). Nothing here is by ‘established’ artists and so nobody would care what happens. There are unwritten rules for other types of art or the places where the art is.
