3878. Garnet Street

This ‘find’ is another one that I can attribute to Upfest’s summer event because I would never have stumbled across it if I hadn’t been driving around Bedminster like a lunatic looking for new Upfest pieces.

The pair of pieces on the walls of the Chessel Centre, BS3 Community, are of course by Andy Council. The pieces have probably been there for a little while because they are in the form of animals composed of architecture, including the Clifton suspension bridge, a landmark that makes an appearance in much of Andy Council’s work. His more recent pieces have moved away from architectural components instead being replaced with building blocks stitched together with cord.

Both of these little murals are packed with animals and a wonderful sense of fun. I’m not sure what the Chessel Centre actually does, but the murals convey a sense of community. This is a wonderful way to brighten up our streets.

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.
