Unloved posessions

and accumulated junk;

a Christmas chuck-out.

89. Cherry Lane

This is one of several tributes to Mibzy (Mibsy) (King of paint) that can be found in Bristol. More about Mibzy here.

This ‘burner’ (straightforward lettering or word) is attributed to Bristol artist Deamze, although I am having difficulty confirming it. It has been slapped up on a derelict shop front. Looking at earlier photographs of this tribute on the Interweb, shows just how rapidly this building is crumbling. A forgotten side street, but Mibzy is not forgotten.

88. Hillgrove Street (4)

The more posts I write about Bristol street art/graffiti, the more familiar I am becoming with the various artists and their particular styles. I have had to do a lot of research, often on the thinnest of evidence, but sometimes I am simply stumped.

I have been struggling, until today, with the artist that created this beautiful mural on Hillgrove Street in Stokes Croft. The penny dropped when I was looking at Google images of the work of Silent Hobo, and I spotted this one. Of course it is by Silent Hobo…how could I have been so stupid? It is moments like these that broaden my knowledge. I must remind myself that I have only been doing this for a few months and it will take a long time to become an expert.

The Silent Hobo works I have presented before (33 and 66) are not similar enough to this one for me to have made the connection. I am really struck by this piece.
