1158. Bedminster

This piece and the one adjacent to it by Deamze have gone now as the buildint they are sprayed on is now surrounded with anti-graff hoardings, presumably because some development work has begun.

This is yet another high-quality piece from the Soker production line. Strong clear lines and colours, clean work from this great writer. There is a party feel to this piece with a backdrop of orange flashes and blue bubbles that contrasts cleverly with the pink and green lettering. The baseball caps on the letters adds a nice tough to the piece.

Alex Lucas is everywhere in Bristol, a street art celebrity. Even if people in the city don’t know her by name, they will almost certainly have seen her work, and will recollect it if you describe it to them.

This is a recent piece that I was lucky enough to see as the shutters were down when I happened to be passing by – something that doesn’t seem to work out for me too often because I do most of my walking and photographing during daylight hours.

What a great advert these beautiful butterflies are for the Independent Desigh Collective which sets out to feature and promote designers and makers from the local area. Maybe one day I’ll come knocking on their door/shutters.

1102. Bedminster

I took this picture a couple of months ago in Bedminster, and of course it is instantly recognisable as a piece by Laic217. All the signature elements are there, a portrait, distortion, this time through broken glass, the bucket hat and smiley.

it was after seeing this piece, that the frequency of work Laic217 was churning out decreased markedly. I am pleased to say that he appears to be back up and running and firing on all cylinders.

Although this is not my favourite of his pieces, it is striking, and the colours really stand out.

1067. Bedminster

Fish and chips, horse and carriage, Morecambe and Wise…these are all things that we are accustomed to seeing together and so it is with Ryder and T-Rex. This is a rather nice little collaboration in Bedminster by these two painting buddies.

The radioactive R on the left is an icon that Ryder uses quite a lot, particularly when he is doing a quick throw-up. This one is a little more elaborate than some I have seen recently.

The dinosaur is obviously by T-Rex, this time opting for a rather fetching lilac colour, which seems to be in vogue at the moment in Bristol. There is something familiar and comforting about a collaboration between these two.

1064. Bedminster

Yet another really sharp piece from Deamze, using colours that he likes to use together tucked away in Bedminster. This clever piece bisects his wildstyle writing and character diagonally from top left to bottom right, the top half being monochrome pink and the bottom monochrome green.

It is a striking work that demonstrated Deamze’s talents to the full. I am not sure who the cartoon character is…answers on a postcard.
