There are many things I love about photographing street/graffiti art and one of them is that I am constantly discovering new (to me) artists. Although he is well established, I have only recently registered the utterly incredible Ments.

His unusual organic style of wildstyle writing is really impressive and so different from most of the other writers in Bristol. On his Instagram feed, Ments said of this, “wasn’t keen on  this one but it’s all fun and games”. If only I had a tenth of his artistic talent.

Well Feoflip really is the man of the moment. Before Upfest 2016 I hadn’t seen any of his work, or if I had, it had passed me by. Now it seems I can’t go anywhere in Bristol without stumbling upon one of his incredible pieces.

This face has something of the Easter Island statues about it, maybe given the Picasso treatment. I think it is a stunning piece, but the colours and shades he uses lends his work to blending in with its surroundings. Rarely do his pieces jump out and grab you by the collar, and many folk will just walk on by oblivious. But if you do happen to stop and take a look, you are in for a real treat. These are beautifully detailed and creatively styalised pieces that would look comfortable in many contemporary art galleries.

Beautiful work…and more of his to come.

This is another intricate piece from Dibz dating back to June this year. Dibz lives locally and tends to save his spraying for the walls at Dean Lane skate park. I recently featured another of his works from an adjacent wall.

This is really well worked wildstyle writing, all very carefully planned from his black book. His Instagram feed is well worth a look, as it shown the extent and sheer complexity of some of his ideas. A really talented Bristol graffiti artist.
