Skronius, Purdown Battery, Bristol, October 2021

4018. Purdown HAA Battery (37)

Of all the newer artists in Bristol, I think I know the least about Skronius. Keeping a low profile seems to be the order of the day, or maybe our paths simply haven’t crossed yet. Skronius certainly favours this spot, and since I only visit about once every three weeks or so, the likelihood of meeting are pretty slim.

I would say that fantasy creatures and worlds are favoured by Skronius, and this dragon head is quite fabulous. His style really doesn’t look like spray-painting, and this piece in particular looks like it could be a watercolour. I think Skronius achieves this effect by laying down the character colours first and then adding in the detail with the black lines. However it is done, it is an unusual effect. I love the way it is signed in the smoke in the top left-hand corner.

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.
