297. Stokes Croft corner wall (3)

This is another one of 3Dom’s favourite walls. For about a year the space has been occupied by his slightly odd skull in a birdcage piece. Its replacement is something altogether different and in my view odd or unsettling.

This is a piece full of symbolism that I can’t for the life of me unravel. The piece presents us with a foetus that has the Earth for a head. The dark red surround is, I guess, representative of the womb, which appears to be a landfill site or some other wasteland. All most peculiar.

I think it would be good top try and collar him sometime and ask him about some of his pieces, as they are wild, hugely creative and visually provocative.

145. Redland Road

I am always taken by this amazing and simple stencil on a railway bridge in Redland. The image of a baby’s face by an unknown artist is stencil work in its most raw form. One also has to admire the artist’s determination at spraying in such locations. Do they drop down from the railway, or climb up from a ladder?

I love this stripped-back simple graffiti.
