465. Stokes Croft, somewhere

If my virtual pile of ‘to do’ images was somehow converted into real actual photographs, it would be a very very big stack of pictures indeed. Lurking deep in this pile there are still some images of work done by Tian earlier in the year when he was on his ‘UK tour’.

This is one of the pasteups, of which there were about 9 or 10, and it features an actress from the 1960s, I would guess, but I am not too sure who it is. All of the pasteups from this particular visit contained famous leading ladies from films of the ’60s and ’70s presented with a slight red/pink tint, which added to the old feel of the pictures.

Tian’s visit and wheatpaste bombing was a pure delight, in fact one of the highlights of 2016 street art in Bristol. I do hope he returns next year with more wonderful creative art.

When I saw this I thought of Klue…ok so I begin with a really cheesy pun, but starting off a post can be difficult you know, so any way in is a welcome way as far as I can see. This is a lovely little piece by Mr Klue, tucked away in the borderlands between St Pauls and St Werberghs.

Mr Klue usually works with abstract continuous shapes with curves and angles, sort of what dreams might look like (I realise that only makes sense to me). Here he creates a scene of a man sitting at a desk with his PC and a window to look out of. It could be me working at home! Again, there is a dream like quality to the work and the pastel colours have a calming effect. Although I photographed this piece in June 2016, I think it was painted back in September 2015, which would explain the deterioration in some of the paint. Quality piece though.

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.
