Eman, Cumberland Basin, Bristol, June 2021

3784. Cumberland Basin

This is another example of the willingness of Eman to stretch himself and experiment with different subjects and forms, and I for one am thoroughly enjoying the ride. The skull of an ungulate would not be everyone’s first thought for street art, but it is a perfect study for honing the skills.

Eman’s versatility and productivity is elevating the artist’s profile in Bristol, and all the hard work is paying off. Two things I love about this piece: the shadings of blues and whites to give the skull some depth and texture; and the somewhat counterintuitive red border, which is quite a bold thing to do. Great 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. Walk into the park with the Andy Council otters. Cross over the tram/foot bridge. Turn left in front of the Create Centre and go under Brunel Way Bridge, the wall starts there. Great views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
