Maesyhook, M32 roundabout, Bristol, March 2021

3869. M32 roundabout J3 (339)

At the time I took these pictures, I didn’t know who the artist was, so I left them lurking in my archive. Every once in a while I like to go back and see if I can unlock these hidden gems with any new information or insights that I might have, and fortunately I have been able to do so with this one. It is a very unusual early piece by Maesyhook.

When I say an early piece, I mean that it was one of the first Maesyhook pieces that I photographed. I am a fan off protest pieces because they document the political landscape of the time, and this pink feline creature has joined the Kill the Bill protest. The protests are about the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, and this article in ‘the Big Issue’ explains a little bit more and demonstrates why this is vexing people who wish to voice their right to protest, and also protect the rights of travellers and the homeless.

I’m not sure what this pink creature has to do with the Bill, but I love it nonetheless.

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.
