Emma Philippa Maeve, Merrywood Road, Bristol, August 2021, Upfest 21

3882. Upfest 2021 75×75 (43)

This modest piece by Emma Philippa Maeve is one of the smallest of Upfest’s 75 walls in 75 days, and could easily be missed by many due to its location just off North Street and the recess it sits in. It is a really interesting piece and quite unlike anything else from the event, demonstrating the breadth of styles and talent that is on display in Bedminster.

The bright and colourful piece looks like an etching scratched into the surface of the wall and her work is influenced by her travels. Emma Philippa Maeve has a very interesting website that shows you more of her work and tells you a little about her inspiration. She uses the term Flaneuse, derived from Flaneur, to describe her lifestyle, and it is a subject close to my own heart. To explore for the sake of making new discoveries and learning more about what is around you… keeping your eyes open is what it is all about. Fabulous.
