2781. Armada Place (18)

It is very nice to see a character piece from Rusk, and this is a bit of fun constructed around the theme of magic mushrooms. Is that still a thing? I am so old. It is also good to see these boards, which in my view are underused and underrated, getting the treatment from some of the best artists in Bristol.

This piece does its job well: the pun; the psychedelic colour selections and the execution come together to create fabulous whole. It would be great to see more turnover on this wall… especially as it is reasonably quick for me to walk there.

I’m trying to work through some of the pictures I have been meaning to post for a while…there is just too much talent in Bristol.

This is a subtle little piece by 3Dom on a small side path off Wilder Street, which I photographed back in June, long before all the Upfest excitement. The unusual work has an emphasis on mushrooms – what kind we can only guess, but the whole piece has an hallucinogenic quality to it.

3Dom is utterly brilliant – there is little more to say really.
