3969. Victoria Square, Weston-super-Mare

This is a stunning stencil by an artist to whom I owe my interest in street art, alongside Kid Crayon, Face 1st and Mr Draws; it is of course the unmistakable (apart from those that confuse him with Banksy) JPS, who grew up in Weston-super-Mare but now lives on the continent.

On the side wall of a café, looking out to sea, is this young girl complete with a camera, snapping up the views of the Pier and Severn Estuary. Her patterned dress is particularly nicely done in this sharp multi-layer stencil.

On my walk around the town I met an old lady who lives two doors down from where JPS grew up, and she said what a lovely boy he was and was obviously very proud of his art and talent, she seemed very knowledgeable about the new pieces in town and was utterly engaged with the street art scene, so good to see. JPS has played no small part in influencing these positive attitudes. Lots more from JPS to come.

  1. Amazing piece. I am becoming more and more interested in Stencil Art (and trying to create things by myself…). The blue dress, with a dash of white paint/light blue is so good, details. Recently,i was watching a video about daniel Eime his cutting… day and night work for those artists. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to the next stencil works you’ll post. Have a nice weekend bro

      1. I know he sometimes gets accused of copying Banksy, but he ‘s still very talented and anyone who follows these things as closely as you do would know the difference straight away.
