3312. River Avon (6)

I don’t get there too often, which is a bit of a shame, but there is a nice walk along the River Avon which contrasts two very different scenes; on one side is the muddy river with plenty of bankside vegetation and a variety of bird species an evidence of other wildlife such as otters on the other side is a long gallery of graffiti and street art displayed on the rear walls of buildings on an industrial estate.

Along this stretch I found this rather nice calligraphy piece by Stivs, an artist getting quite a lot of exposure on Natural Adventures at the moment. The orange and red colour selection is a winning combination and the script has some rather good harlequin reversals breaking up the lines. A fine piece from Stivs.

  1. Hi just found your blog, I have recently found a number of locations in the Lawrence Weston area that are covered in artwork by DJ Perks (as well as others, Droid, DBK, ect). I am a photographer and have taken pics of many, would you have a use for them?

    1. Hi Mark, thank you so much for visiting Natural Adventures, I hope you like what you see. The spot you mention is called L Dub (short for Lawrence (W)eston). It is so kind of you to offer your pictures. At the moment, part of the USP of this blog is that all the pictures are my own. I am no photographer and take them all on a small camera. Do you post your pictures on Instagram or Flickr at all?

      Beware, photographing street art and graffiti writing can become addictive. 🙂
