The last few weeks have seen a rash of Pekoe pieces popping up all over the place and it has been a real pleasure to see. Her distinctive style is the perfect complement to the large and growing cohort of graffiti writers in the city.
This piece by Pekoe is a real celebration of Bristol and articulates exactly how I feel about the city. Bristol has a great culture and with its history steeped in colonialism and the slave trade it is working hard to confront and come to terms with its past and move forward in a progressive and equitable way. The Black Lives Matters movement has had huge support in Bristol and a desire to understand white privilege and to take steps to make things right. We are at the start of something special I hope.
I love the green face and the hairstyle in this piece is a little different, but no less marvellous. A terrific work.
