When I first found this falling monkey on the M32 Cycle path, I was left pondering whom it was painted by, and although it was signed, I didn’t have enough to go on to be able to post the piece at that time. It is by Bean, who has been making a bit of an impact this April, hitting the walls of Bristol pretty hard.
Bean has painted several different characters and certainly has a versatile approach and creative imagination. I am a big fan of monkeys in street art, and since Nightwayss left us, there has been a shortage of simian artwork, so it was good to find this piece. I am expecting great things from Bean this year, if April is anything to go by.
