Void One, M32 roundabout, Bristol, September 2020

3229. M32 roundabout J3 (255)

What an absolutely amazing sight awaited a couple of weeks back on the M32 roundabout. I check the roundabout about once or twice a week, usually on the off chance that there might be something new, and sometimes because I have seen something on social media and need to check it out. This was definitely one that fell into the former category and was a lovely surprise.

The portrait is by Void One, an artist I don’t really know who I think is from Birmingham. I think, looking at his website, that his thing is 3D writing and you can see a little bit of that clutched in the hand of his character. Incidentally, I think (but am guessing really) that the character is a self-portrait.

This is really rather different from the usual fare we see on the roundabout and most welcome it is too. The whole piece is set off nicely with a silhouette cityscape in the background and dark night time colours. I believe that he might also have painted the tenth and final archway in John Street, so I will have to get myself down there before too long. Always a real pleasure seeing work from a visiting artist.
