1938. Cumberland Basin

So here we are again, different venue, different rabbit, same artist. I have said before that for as long as Nevergiveup paints them and as long as I find them, I will continue to post his bunnies here.

This one is on a door which is sited in the concrete wall underneath the Brunel Way bridge. There is a rich vein of rabbit material down here, and it seems that Nevergiveup will spray in places that others haven’t yet tried. Adventure.

1921. Cumberland Basin

This is one of two Daz Cat pieces I found on a recent lunchtime walk to the Cumberland Basin. It was good to find this, as I haven’t seen one of his pieces for a little while. This particular spot does seem to be a favourite haunt for the artist.

This cat is so full of expression, I like the little black line across the teeth which ‘suggests’ individual teeth without actually picking them out. A neat trick. The absence of one eye might lead the viewer to conclude that this cat is a bit of a bruiser. Nice work.

1917. Cumberland Basin

There has been something of a population explosion of bunnies in Bristol recently…it would seem that Nevergiveup Familia has balls of steel and will spray just about any inanimate object in the city.

These are two of his more recent additions from the Cumberland Basin, one on either side of the floating harbour. These two are slightly smaller than his usual door-sized bunnies and are sprayed on utility boxes.

I am definitely a fan and will post rabbits as I find them, but probably bunch them together as there are just so many.

1534. Brunel Way bridge (8)

This piece is actually not really on Brunel Way, but is in the Cumberland Basin where the Brunel Way bridge/flyover begins. And who should pop up here but Pekoe, who until a couple of weeks ago was completely under my radar.

This piece, in doodle style, is actually really nicely presented and has a great balance of bright colours and squiggle elements to make up a fine portrait. I am new to her work, but I am enjoying what I see and look forward to finding more of her pieces in Bristol.
