I understand that Erviti, who has brought so much fine art to the streets of Bristol, is leaving/has left the great city, which is a real shame. Her impact, alongside the Bristol Mural Collective, has been noticeable and welcome, and her memorable cat under Brunel Way remains intact.

This piece was painted on the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft (PRSC) open air gallery in Jamaica Street, and was one of several pieces supporting the ‘My Body – My Rights’ campaign, shortly after the abortion ban in the USA. The piece was painted using Graphenstone paint that absorbs CO2 and is, I believe, a self-portrait. Lots to like here.
