Soker and Andy Council, Waterloo Street, Bristol, April 2022

4429. Waterloo Street (3)

Every once in a while, something very special appears, and when it does it might just be on this wall or one of the adjacent walls, that tend to be left untouched for long periods of time. The special piece in question is this stunning collaborative effort from Andy Council and Soker.

Soker has really been pretty quiet over the last two years, but it is always worth waiting for his pieces when he finds time to paint. With this graffiti writing, set on a tangerine-sunset background, Soker has shown us what he is capable of, with gorgeous letters in full relief and stunning colour selections. This is simply too good.

Alongside his friend, Andy Council has painted one of his wonderful dinosaur pieces, it looks like some kind of Triceratops to me, with his clever ‘stitching’ style, where the component parts of the animal’s body appear to be stitched together with yellow thread. I love the way Andy Council’s work is developing and changing, showing that he is constantly pushing boundaries and improving (if that is at all possible). What a truly wonderful collaborative wall, and how blessed we are in Bristol to have these two outstanding artists.
