Ryder, City Road, Bristol, October 2021

4103. City Road (12)

This magnificent beast was created by Ryder as part of a magnificent paint jam marking the opening of Stoked Food in Stokes Croft. The whole delivery and car parking Bay Area was decorated by several local artists, but this shutter skull was the centrepiece.

Ryder is better known for his outstanding writing, but this is a great character piece, and extra clever as the mouth opens up when the garage door is raised. Very nicely painted and full of cartoon ‘over-the-top’ character, this piece demands to be looked at and enjoyed by passers by on City Road.

      1. Yeah I was lucky that afternoon for sure
        Was going to go to the end of the M32 and then past the BRI towards home but saw there was loads of traffic on the motorway and so came off at Junction 3 and went up City Rd and Bob’s your proverbial Mum’s brother . . .
