2945. M32 roundabout J3 (210)

Even though I don’t know the artists (yes artists), I have posted this for two reasons. Firstly I love the composition and transition of blues and secondly because I discovered a piece I had never seen before while photographing the blue faces.

The blue faces piece, although relatively simple in design has been beautifully executed, with each face in a slightly different shade nestling neatly with the one next to it. The eyes give each face a different expression. It looks like it has been signed LEF. Take a good look at the top left hand corner of the piece and you can see a little piece of installation art that has been overpainted…

This is a piece which I assume had been in situ for some time, but which I had not noticed ever before. It is the kind of work that Will Coles might do, but it is not quite his style. Entitled mammal, it reveals bare breasts (something of a rarity in Bristol street art). I love this, and liked it even more for discovering it accidentally.

Two pieces for the price of one, but both artists unknown to me.
