3538. Lower Ashley Road (5)

Rosalita is an artist who seems to have burst into life since November last year, and although I had seen a few of her pieces before then, she has jumped into another league of productivity. This is a great thing to see, because her work is exciting, imaginative, vibrant and thoughtful and adds another dimension to the Bristol street art scene.

This quick piece on the hoardings of Lower Ashley Road didn’t last long, so I am really pleased I made the effort to photograph it. Rosalita has painted an acrobatic figure, perhaps a carnival entertainer (she does like her carnivals), in a striped red and white costume (the best colours). There is a whole ton of movement in the piece and the body form is perfectly proportioned. I still have a couple more pieces from Rosalita to post and am hoping that this purple patch continues.

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.
