1161. Ashley Road (14)

Ok, so this is an interesting piece in Ashley road that appeared recently. It is, I think, by the Bristol artist Fiver, who also goes by the name Fiva and Henry Barnes who I posted about back in March this year. It is a bright and cheerful piece and would appear to be a celebration, welcoming ‘Eira’ into the world. Maybe his own child? I don’t know. I hope this isn’t just a one-off because I like the style of his work here.

As well as turning to street art from time to time Henry Barnes is also a tireless campaigner for the National Autistic Society and their too much information campaign, which is a thoroughly brilliant thing.

693. St Andrews Road (2)

On a walk to the Montpelier area of Bristol a little while back, I came across this interesting piece by Fiver aka Henry Barnes. It doesn’t get much more Bristol than spraying a Wallace and Gromit piece on your garage door as a nice way to encourage people not to park in front of it.

There is no doubting Fiver’s skill, and this is a nice piece. However, he is another Bristol artist who appears to have been under my radar, and this is the first of his pieces that I have featured. I think he tends to do a lot of work using existing characters from cartoons. On doing a bit of research, I found this nice article about how he proposed to his girlfriend in front of a piece he sprayed of her favourite characters. All good.
