I often talk about how lazy I am in these posts, and I am not proud of it at all, and a fine demonstration of my condition is that I took these pictures from my car without even bothering to get out. Shame on me.
It is another fabulous rabbit from Nevergiveup or NGU or #followmyrabbits or whatever else you want to call him. Now resident in Bath, the artist still pops over to Bristol from time to time, so there is still a constant flow of new material to hunt down. The fine designs on these rabbits is getting ever more intricate, which will be a great mechanism for dating them in the future.
It is impossible for me not to be utterly enchanted by Pelmo’s work. These unusual cartoon scenes have a touching element to them and the stories that unfold are witty and caring. In this piece a cyclist (with enormous thighs) in a pedalo swan is towing an unfeasibly large waterskier whose lifejacket is clinging on for dear life.
The piece is in a little back lane in Bedminster that I never even knew existed and suits this wall perfectly. I am guessing that Pelmo must use brushes as well as spray paint, because the fine detail of the piece would simply not be possible using cans alone. An absolute winner.
