895. The Bearpit (78)

So the most prolific Bristol street artist, Laic217,¬†continues to spread his love all over the city. This one is at the bottom of the steps on the north west side of The Bearpit. The story here is not entirely clear, but the bug spray would appear to be killing the bugs inside the skeleton’s head.

Laic217 is really perfecting these skull characters, and telling loads of stories on the way. There are emergent themes in his work: skulls and death generally; insects; bucket hats and¬†spray cans. Few of his pieces don’t have two or more of these things.

You won’t have to wait long for another Laic217 post – I have several waiting in the wings.

Intimidating

deception masks a higher
