Fiva, St Werburghs, Bristol, March 2020

2848. St Werburghs tunnel (163)

This epic piece probably signals the last for a while from Bristol-based artist Fiva. Clearly Covid-19 related, the two breakout pieces of text spell out:

“Stay safe” and “look after your gran”

There has been a lot of this kind of language spoken and written in recent weeks and this I think captures the state of national compassion exhibited by the vast majoity of people with dissenting arseholes remaining silent or out of sight.

As with the previous post, less is definitely more although this less is also more, making it more less is more. This is the second epic piece by Fiva in recent months and I have a feeling that this one might last rather longer than the last one.

There is little that Fiva can do wrong in my eyes and I find this a thrilling and brave piece. A nice touch is the grey shadows just to the right of each letter giving the whole thing a bit of a lift. This piece oozes class and I love it.

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.
