There seem to be an extraordinarily large number of roadworks happening around the city at the moment (I put it down to council year-end spending), and my journeys to street art spots are being somewhat disrupted. Mostly this is an irritation, but in this instance I was diverted down a road I rarely drive along, and my prize was finding this magnificent Kosc piece that I have known about for a while, but just wasn’t too sure where it was.
Kosc has been knocking it out of the park lately with his distinctive black and white portraits set on a vibrant scarlet-orange background. This is a fabulous portrait of Lady G, Angela Frances, about whom I know precious little and am unable to find anything on the Interweb. The BS2 refers to the Bristol post code that covers much of the St Paul’s area, including Brigstocke Road.
Finding pieces like this, that are off the beaten track, is one of the most rewarding things about photographing and cataloguing street art, and this left a very large smile on my face.
