2886. Surrey Street (1)

I have always intended to post this huge piece on the wall of a garage in Surrey Street by Tom Miller, but just never got round to it. Cometh the moment, cometh the man. This early piece (2016) is typical of the explosion of ideas that comes from this creative dynamo and his colourful style.

There is no point in tryig to fathom out a story here, because although there almost certainly is one, it could take a lifetime to work out. All sorts of body parts and possibly an environmental theme are represented here in this surreal piece.

At the time, I don’t recall there being much of a fuss about this piece, and I think it remained under the radar for quite a long time. Alas it has now gone.

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. I realise street art is a transient thing (and as you know I’m certainly no expert), but some art deserves a longer life than others. Wouldn’t it be great if we could safeguard the good stuff and ditch the rest of it – but it’s much the same in all aspects of life I suppose.

  2. It was a private commission for the bloke that owns the building / garage. I chatted to Tom when he was about half way through and asked him if it was a legal piece and the owner was there at the time and he confirmed it was being done at his behest. Alas, by the time I got round to going back to get a shot of it, it had been trashed. I did last a while though despite the tags etc.
