3333. M32 roundabout J3 (266)

I don’t know why they bother, but about every six months or so Bristol City Council buff the walls around parts of the M32 roundabout. It seems like a costly and futile exercise, because within about five minutes the graffiti and street art returns. Frankly it is a waste of tax-payers money.

One of the quickest artists off the mark both this time and last was Daz Cat with his cats either side of one of the tunnels. Last time the cats were chrome and gold, this time pink and orange.

I have an image in my mind that Daz Cat follows the council ‘buffing team’ around with a spray can at the ready to be first on the new blank canvass, a bit like being the first skier down a fresh powder piste on the first run of the day. Each of the cats is calling out the colour of the other in this fun and mischievous piece.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

  1. Indeed a futile and costly piece although I now understand that this is one of the jobs they get people who have been sentenced to community service to do so perhaps not quite as expensive but just as futile . . .
