3873. Upfest 2021 75×75 (40)

This is such a wonderful piece on one of the most tricky walls to photograph in Bedminster (and there are a great many of them), but SkyHigh has worked with it rather than against it, and told me all about it when I met him while painting it.

The wall is in front of a little green which has been planted with trees, so photographing the full wall can only be achieved from the sides or through the trees. Taking this into account, SkyHigh has introduced a woodland scene as a backdrop and added a beautiful Bristol fox.

The block letters spell out SKYHIGH and are painted in a vibrant blue colour that contrasts brilliantly with the woodland greens and browns.

The whole scene might be a little more visible in the winter when the young trees have shed their leaves. I donโ€™t think it really matters though because of the way the artist has approached the piece and incorporated the trees as part of the overall effect.

SkyHigh is a highly skilled artist and demonstrates this with the stunning fox portrait to the right hand side of the piece, one of the best street art foxes I have seen. SkyHigh is always, always welcome in Bristol.

      1. I did get some good fish-eye shots of Andy Councils Quay Street one’s – on my other blog, they won’t appear on this one for ages as there are several months worth of posts in the pipeline already. Go to the home page and scroll down a bit or type Andy Council in the search box
