4601. Cumberland Basin

I met Maybe (or Maybe paints to give him his full label) at last, for the first time, at Upfest, and I have to say it was not difficult to spot him, at well over 6ft tall, with long black curly hair and wearing an orange jumpsuit… nothing at all like I was expecting. Of course, as with the vast majority of street artists, it was a genuine pleasure to meet him, and he seemed like a lovely bloke.

These two little inspection hatches, one on either side of the bridge across the river, have been crying out for a little bit of decoration, and Maybe has obliged with two colour coordinated ‘kissing face’ pieces.

Both pieces are classic Maybe, and take us back to some of his earliest pieces from underneath Brunel Way. Since then, his confidence, technique and repertoire have grown considerably, and he has definitely captured the imagination of Bristol folk who look out for and see street art. Great work.
