Evey and Eman, M32 roundabout, Bristol, June 2021

3766. M32 roundabout J3 (330)

I think that Eman is the artist I have seen the most of in recent weeks, I think that the times and days and locations that we visit somehow coincide. This time I was lucky enough to catch him painting his first portrait piece in collaboration with Evey, although she had not yet arrived when I took this WIP shot.

Obviously any blue female portrait will be compared in some way to the most reproduced Chinese Girl portrait by Vladimir Trechikoff and this isn’t too far away from that. It is great to see Eman trying new things, he seems to have an appetite for pushing himself hard and with great results.

Evey, who turned up after I had gone, has added some orange flowers and her letters EVEN to the right of the piece and reminds us that ‘all black lives still matter’ keeping the BLM movement in the agenda. This is a rather lovely collaboration, and quite unusual in its structure. Great to see.

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.
