4283. Franklyn Lane

I rarely post pieces by artists that I can’t name, but sometimes I feel that I just have to, especially if the likelihood of me ever finding out who they are are practically nil. This beautiful traditional Indian art is tucked away in a back street in St Paul’s, and has recently been repainted/repaired.

I’m sure these artworks have a name, but I don’t know what it is. Whatever they are called doesn’t matter too much, because this is just stunning. The quality and detail of the piece are outstanding. Simply brilliant, and I honour the artist whoever they are.

1896. Franklyn Lane (1)

There is a reward for those who wander. I took a little walk in St Pauls a short while ago and went down a back street I’ve never been down before and there on an old derelict building I found this interesting piece on dit of board covering a door.

The drawn sketch, which I assume is by Aicha, is an unusual find and one that would more likely be found in a studio or gallery. It is also unusual because it has been drawn directly onto the surface, rather than on to a piece of paper and pasted up. I have not heard of Aicha before so can tell you nothing about the artist. I am guessing that I might have seen some tags from this artist before. A fine creative sketch and welcome contribution to the Bristol scene.
