It is extraordinary and quite unforgivable that this isn’t the only Hazard piece that hasn’t made it onto Natural Adventures over the last year, and I will have to go back and find the others, because no self-respecting chronicler of Bristol street art, would have allowed this to happen. I can’t explain myself. Perhaps this appalling situation arose because the first time I photographed the piece, there were railings up against it. Who knows?

The portrait piece is superbly painted, especially when you consider the heavily textured stonework on the wall, and is a tribute to the late Skibadee who died at the very young age of 47 last February. The portrait is a great one and hints back at some of her earlier works in which the two sides of the face are bathed in different colours. This is just one of so many outstanding pieces by Hazard.

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.
