4046. Purdown HAA Battery (39)

On Natural Adventures, I typically prepare the images in advance that I am going to post, so I might have maybe up to two week’s worth of material waiting in the wings. Then each morning, before work, I quickly pull some words together and insert the prepared images, and hey presto, we have street art post number 4046.

This approach means that I know, several days in advance what pieces I will be posting, so when Skronius posted this new piece on Instagram yesterday, I was able to inform him that I had coincidentally prepared a blog which I would publish today.  I expect that this rambling is just too much information, so on to the piece.

Skronius definitely seems to favour this spot, and I haven’t yet seen any of his work anywhere else in Bristol. His style is quite illustrative and is full of dynamism and movement. This bright and colourful creature munching on steps reminds me very much of the Buddhist art you might see in Nepal or Tibet, the theme, style and colours could all have been lifted from that region and placed here in Purdown. I am a fan of Skronius’ work which is refreshing and different. Looking forward to finding more, and seeing Skronius develop as a street artist.
