Duncan McKellar, High Street, Bristol, May 2022

4456. High Street

Street art captures a great many forms, from spray paintings to paste ups to installations to sculptures, and this amazing piece by Duncan McKellar fits into the last category. There are not many sculptors in Bristol, so it is always great to come across their work, and Duncan McKellar uses scaffolding protector tubing bound together with cable ties as his preferred materials.

This sculpture is of two clasping hands in the colours of the Ukraine national flag, which is fortunate, because these are the two colours that the scaffold protector comes in. The sculpture is constructed around a rather hapless tree deep in the heart of Bristol. I would imagine that it won’t last too long before the council come along and remove it, but in the meantime it makes a bold statement of solidarity with the Ukrainian people.
