4173. M32 Spot (129)

Think big, and think ceiling and you might then be thinking Risco, if you follow street art in Bristol that is, otherwise you might be thinking Michelangelo. There the similarity ends. This is only the third Risco piece to appear on Natural Adventures, which is a bit disappointing really, because I have pictures of several others… time to raid the archives.

This piece is not the easiest to photograph due to being on the ceiling and also the light quality is challenging with light from outside bleeding into the pictures. The subject is a fabulous skeleton of a mythical creature, a fish or a dragon or something. The two tone work is exceptional given it is painted high up on the ceiling. I’m not sure how Risco painted these pieces, but it must be with long poles and rollers, with the detail added from a ladder?

I am constantly struck by the incredible creativity and energy of street art in Bristol, and pieces like this simply add to my sense of awe and admiration.

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.

  1. Last time I saw him he had his own mini platform of scaffolding which worked really well but the actual work is very obviously neck breaking.
    I think the mythical creature is actually a carp . . .
