Ta da! This post marks something of a landmark for me and Natural Adventures… it is the 5,000th street/graffiti art post. Natural Adventures has come a long way from its origination as a place to document a journal I kept of an adventure in the South Atlantic in 1987. Haiku and street art just crept up on me, and have now become a central pillar in my life.

I cannot think of a better way to celebrate this milestone than with an outstanding and passionate piece by Rozalita AKA Rohzi.

Rozalita, Greenbank, Bristol,

I was fortunate enough to have a long chat with Rohzi as she was buffing the wall for this piece, and once the conversation got going, she really opened up and I was thoroughly enjoying myself until the dog decided he’d had enough and started to bark, which means he wants to go. The conversation ended a little too abruptly for my liking, but it is an occupational hazard when walking the dog and photographing street art.

Rozalita mentioned that the portrait was of people from an Amazonian tribe, and she was going to leave a hashtag on the piece to find out more, but that didn’t seem to happen. The portrait itself is exceptional and demonstrates just how far she has come over the last year or two. I do hope it isn’t too long before I get a chance to continue our chat.

  1. What a fantastic piece to celebrate your 5000th post! I love your blog, I hope you never stop doing it.

    You often mention chatting to street artists. Have you done any interviews with them? If not, I think that would be a cool addition to this blog.

  2. Indeed a superb piece to mark a fabulous achievement but if you check my Insta you will realise it started off as a three person portrait and got cut back to two by whoever went over the right hand side . . .
    There was indeed no hashtag though . . .

      1. I saw Mr Draws and Zake painting together down at the skatepark on Friday and so went back on Saturday but realised that Kid Crayon and I Am Ian had painted over their work but that by the time I got down there Hire had already gone over I Am Ian’s piece lol . . .

        Together we are Snoozing & Indeed Loozing . . . 😉
