4484. Upfest 2022 (10)

Shortly after painting this vibrant piece for Upfest, Rtiiika had a leaving paint jam on Cattle Market Road with her Bristol Womxn Mural Collective friends. I am not too sure where she is leaving to or how long for, but I am certain she will be back.

This is a beautifully designed piece with Rtiiika’s classic stylised figures all jumbled up together. A mash up of shoes, hats, legs, boobs and willies, some in outline and some in solid fill make this a dynamic and fun piece. Even though Rtiiika has left Bristol, I have several more of her pieces in my archive which I hope to find time to post. One of my favourite Rtiiika pieces.

    1. I agree it is a bit unusual and maybe an acquired taste, I don’t know. That is the joy of street art, there is so much to choose from and we don’t have to like it all.

      1. Yes indeed – the joy of it is the diversity – and here I n Richmond va there is some stuff I dislike so much I won’t even take photos of it.
        Some can be dark and almost evil – sigh – others – too many body parts (although not against anatomy if it goes with the theme – like the high heel boots and boobs here seem to match a theme – along with the nice geometrics)

      2. The best bit is we can like what we like and not like what we don’t. I suppose because street art is in the public arena, the ‘bad’ stuff can feel invasive/offensive.
