I have not yet met Lewse, which is regrettable, really. Everywhere you go in Bristol, the chances are that you will encounter a Lewse piece, and some of them have been about for a while. I think there is a lot of respect out there for Lewse’s work, and quite rightly so.

This is a rather wonderful piece of writing with a character in tow. The letters are large, clear, regular and superbly filled and finished and are bookended by the head and tail of Disney’s incarnation of Lewis Carroll’s Cheshire cat. Great colour scheme, and so very easy on the eye. Anither keeper from Lewse.

3237. Alfred Street (7)

This wall has been something of a treasure trove since it was painted at the Raw Wax paint jam at the back end of August. It is great to have a business in Bristol, in this instance Dare To, that welcomes street artists to decorate its walls, particularly in this rather dreary industrial estate.

This piece is by Ware who is one of the RAW artists that seems to paint less regularly than some of the others in the crew. Such rarity adds value, and it is great to see a piece of intricate writing like this. The character is the Cheshire Cat from the Disney adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Each piece in this particular wall is composed of writing with a character and it is so worth a visit.
