Since I started writing about street art some five years ago or so I have seen many established artists, but I have also seen the emergence of a great many artists new to Bristol. Of course some artists have jumped off the conveyor belt or moved out of the city, but I would say that there are more street/graffiti artists in Bristol now than there have been at any time in history.
An artist I am starting to notice more around the place is Pl8o (Plato-geddit?). I imagine that Pl8o is new to the city rather than new to street art, because the work I have seen is all really good and not the work of a novice (I should know). There is a lot to like about this piece – the shape of the letters, the fill designs such as bricks, stars and drips and the overall clean and tidy lines. More to come from Pl8o soon.
