It is always, always a pleasure to find Merny pieces… he is one of my favourite artists in Bristol, always coming up with pieces that have a story to tell, and this one at the entrance of the tunnel is no exception.

Unlike many other Merny pieces, this one has remained untagged and intact for a week or two now, which is great news for those that don’t get an opportunity to see his creations. The message here is ‘don’t throw the baby out with the bath water’, but what it refers to I am not quite sure. The naive illustration is full of colour and movement and leaves little to the imagination.

The right-hand side of the piece is a little bit of extra abstract work, and I am not entirely sure what it is about. There is a nice colour transition, and the shapes are quite pleasing. I wondered if it was finished, or whether Merny was simply using up some paint and having a bit of fun. As a whole, I like this wall, but of course I would, because I am a bit of a fan.

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. I love the baby / bathwater one. haven’t been to Bristol for ages. Long overdue for a visit but so much going on elsewhere of late; Cheltenham / London / WsM / BosFest / Worcester with Birmingham High Vis coming up this weekend. Soon Swindon will be joining the paint festival circuit. Just as well I’m retired, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to keep up with it all.

    1. That is an incredible list of events. I am in full time employment and really busy, so I have to manage on lunch breaks and occasional visits to WsM and Cheltenham. I’ve not done a London trip for years… it is difficult to get away at weekends. I am looking forward to retirement, byut that might not be for a few years, although I am considering dropping to 3 days a week, which would give me more time.
