4096. Alpine Road

I have always known that when looking for street art, it always pays off to walk round an extra corner or walk further than you were planning, because there are so many gems out there off the beaten track. I found this glorious mural by Gage Graphics on a trip to Greenbank. My dog wanted a longer walk, so I went on a bit of an exploration and was lucky enough to find this piece.

It was also interesting walking into Easton from a different direction and visualising how it all joins up. The mural takes up two sides of a corner building and seems to be a bit of an urban Bristol scene, identifiable by the Clifton suspension bridge, with some cartoon characters and fantasy shapes.

I do believe Top Cat makes an appearance as well as Jerry the mouse peering from a or, which all seems a little incongruous to me, but might have been a special request for the commission.

On the shorter side of the building there appear to be two little seating areas, with a dog playing a guitar and a small speaker system cleverly painted onto the gas meter box. A wonderful new and fantastical piece for Bristol by Gage Graphics.

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.
