Meniscus

 

With consummate ease,

walking on water is like

a stroll in the park.

With many thanks to a friend who told me about this tiny ‘shock wave’┬áby JPS, that is missed by most who walk this street. The pictures may give you some idea of scale.

In Weston-super-Mare, where JPS comes from, there is a full scale version of the same work on the side of a shop.

Weston-super-Mare is of course also playing host to Banksy’s Dismaland exhibition.

More JPS here and here, and also take a look at a great JPS post from Street Art Rat.

Only a stone’s throw away from the new Unify stencil, is a┬ámemorable work by one of Bristol’s most celebrated street artists.

Nick Walker was born in 1969 (which makes him almost as old as me) and has become a world famous artist, having emerged from the Bristol graffiti scene in the early 1980s. He tends to use stencils and freehand, and many of his works will be found in more than one place. More about Nick Walker can be found here.

This particular mural is known as ‘Rapunzel’ and features a recurring theme in his work of a ‘vandalism’ motif with a heart. It appeared in August 2008.

I will be posting more of his Bristol murals in time.
