Door, Moon Street, Bristol.

The artist who has tagged this door is called Ryder, and this is his shorthand that he sprays quickly as something of an elaborate tag. His writing work though is exceptional, see some examples below. The door itself is a little-used side door which accesses the Lakota club.

105. Moon Street (5)

The Lakota nightclub in Moon Street is famous, not only in Bristol, but countrywide (as I have just found out from reading the wikipedia entry), and has had something of a turbulent recent history.

The area is a magnet for street artists, but the commissions on the walls of this club are outstanding. Cheo and Gregor Minto have given one of Bristol’s landmarks a remarkable identity.

If you live in Bristol, Moon Street is well worth a visit just to see these magnificent walls.
