Cat astrophe


Wailing for her food

far beyond irritating

already been fed

Ninja the cat is getting on a bit and is losing her hearing and sight. Oh my goodness the noisy protest for food. Had she had her wits about her she’d have found the food already in her bowl.

I caught sight of this amazing new mural by Conrico from the M32 and I was driving past a week or two back. I had to go back and take another look and found that it is a large commission piece for the ‘Jerusalem Falafel’ shop in Newfoundland Road.

Conrico is an artist who I have only really known about for the last year or so but his work has certainly made an impact on me and he has featured in Natural Adventures rather a lot, which is a good thing. This bright and colourful mural features a young man in a red shirt and baseball cap grasping a wrap framed in a wall of fruit and vegetables. It is all very Conrico. It would be interesting to see how other Bristol artists might have played out this brief… now there’s an idea.

This brightly coloured piece by Soap looks almost good enough to eat. Lots of stuff in there that looks like delicious confections, and the trademark mouth/teeth seem to be getting stuck in.

I have said it before about his recent work, that Soap seems to have found a new spring in his step and there is a joi de vivre in his work over the last year or so. It is great to see this, and in my view his work just seems to be getting better and better.
