I have to confess that when I photographed this piece I couldn’t work out who it was by and it wasn’t until I saw Paul H’s Instagram post that I found out, and then of course it was blindingly obvious. It is funny how sometimes you can’t see the wood for the trees. It is of course by Mr Sleven.
Mr Sleven, Brunel Way, Bristol, November 2020The piece is entitled ‘the devil wears khakis’ and is a fairly dark portrayal of a demon or the devil. I love the way the piece kind of blends into its surroundings and the end spot on this concrete wall is the perfect space for it. Mr Sleven conveys a strong sense of menace and horror – a fine piece.
