3813. Gerrish Avenue

Three dancing octopus girls seems to be what is going on in this superb mural from Sussanah Polley who appears to have moved from Western Australia to the fine city of Bristol, and that is great news for us. This mural, ‘naked octopus party’ is one of a few adorning pubs around Bristol, and I need to seek out some of the others.

Sussanah Pooley’s pop surrealism art is a perfect fit for Bristol’s street art scene, combining originality and creativity with perfect execution. Any piece of art with naked ladies and octopi gets my vote for sure. I found this piece by accident, which was very lucky, but will try to be a little more deliberate in future. A truly wonderful piece and I look forward to finding more.

  1. I first saw this piece perhaps a couple of years ago and then completely forgot about it until I ‘found’ it again more recently
    It’s funny but I was thinking of letting you know about it as I thought it would make a great post but then realised I’d just have to wait for you to find it yourself, something you have done in just about a month or so . . .
