Elv8, Brunel Way, Bristol, July 2020

3109. Brunel Way bridge (52)

Just when you think you have got your head around all the new artists in Bristol, more seem to appear out of the ether. Some will be one-off visitors, some will be emerging new talent some may have been around for a while but I just haven’t picked up on their work yet. I am not sure which category Elv8 fits into, but this is a lovely recent piiece from under Brunel Way bridge.

The portrait piece is really striking probably due to its fantastic use of bold colours, the dark blue and red making a very strong statement – no wallflower this piece. There is a simplicity that is attractive, but also some complexity in the white shading that offers some relief on the girl’s face and shoulders. Great to see and I hope there will be more.

  1. He’s not a visitor he’s recently moved from Greece to Bristol so we can expect more from him soon
    This was his first paint in Bristol and he’s since done another in the same spot that I have yet to post on Insta but it will definitely be getting posted
    He’s a really friendly guy and I’m sure we will see plenty more from him in the upcoming months . . .
