3347. Brunel Way bridge (77)

Over the past four months or so, some seriously epic pieces have started to appear on the ceilings under the M32 and Brunel Way. These magnificent statements are by Risco, and artist I was not familiar with before August this year.

This piece under Brunel Way is a full skeleton in partial foetal position and was painted round about 21 November. I suspect it’ll be here for many years to come, I mean who else is going to go to such effort to tag or over-paint it? I think that Risco must use rollers on long poles to do this and it must be back-breaking work which makes this all the more impressive. Well worth a look.

  1. I watched him for a while when he painted the M32 Skatespot and was surprised by how little roller work and how much spraypainting was actually involved. There he had a scaffolding section but not sure what he used for this piece but hugely impressive however it was done!
