Hazard, High Street, Bristol, May 2022

4473. High Street

I am feeling a little ‘hungover’ this morning having drenched myself in a festival of street art and graffiti at Upfest over the last two days. I have almost reached saturation point, so forgive me if this post does not quite live up to any expectation.

I have mentioned before that I consider Hazard to have elevated herself into the world-class category, and I don’t think it will be too long before she will be headlining at street art festivals all over the world. This enormous piece in the centre of Bristol, near Castle Park, demonstrates clearly her talent and class. The piece has been here for a little while- I was rather late to the party, and unfortunately the margins of the piece have been tagged, which is a little annoying. The early bird gets the worm.

The concept is a good one, with a portrait made up of composite features in differently shaded boxes. It is a very clever and effective idea that represents many people in one portrait. I am so pleased that Hazard is getting to paint these large walls, because it is the least she deserves. Hazard also happens to be one of the most delightful artists in Bristol, always happy to have a chat, even if she isn’t quite sure exactly who she is talking to…

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. Well, I totally agree with you about Hazard’s artistic talents – and I hope you enjoyed Upfest. Just a shame that I can’t manage these sort of things like I used to 😦

    1. Thank you. It was a crazy couple of days, very tiring. I took over 900 pictures which will take me forever to process. Some incredible work, but alas I never got to see many pieces completed.
