4402. Ashley Court

This is one of those pieces that I photographed some time ago, and even had some pictures of it when it was only half-finished, but it has remained in my folders because I wanted to do some research and find out a little bit more about it. Unfortunately my work has been ultra busy lately and I haven’t found time to look into the piece, but I simply had to scratch that itch, so I am posting it now.

The magnificent portraits are by Hazard and celebrate the lives of two local residents. The lower portrait is of Israel Augustus Daley, who was fondly known as Gullu. His name above the piece has a saxophone alongside it, and I guess he was a musician.

The higher portrait celebrates Justina Sharpe. Both pieces were funded by Sovreign Housing Association who own Ashley Court. Of course, it is the bright and colourful artwork by Hazard that makes these portraits so special, and already the building has become a landmark for its portraits.

Not content with the two portraits, Hazard also sprinkled some beautiful flowers and leaves at one of the entrances to the building. Hazard is turning out some truly outstanding work, and is in my view a world-class street artist.

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.
