4517. Leonard Lane (35)

Back to Leonard Lane, and this special Queen’s platinum Jubilee celebration piece by John D’oh. This is another fantastically presented piece from John D’oh, who has been producing some really outstanding work lately, really stepping up a level.

This one is an irreverent glance at the Queen, with specific reference to her second son’s indiscretions and rather odd alibi, for his involvement in a sex scandal, that he had taken his daughter to a Pizza Express in Woking on the day in question. It is nice to have these little reminders of British history so perfectly illustrated through John D’oh’s stencils. I have noticed that he has stencilled this one in another of his favourite spots, and need to get over there to photograph it.

I thought I’d include a little extra piece from John D’oh, which I think is from some time ago, but is right next to the Jubilee pizza piece. Gotta love this one!

2921. Ashley Hill

I cannot think how many times I have driven past this amazing pizza piece by Feek at the bottom of Ashley Hill, but I have never taken a moment to photograph it. This particular picture is pretty terrible… not only is is rather shaded, but I took it from the car window because I am lazy. Not ideal.

Shutter pieces are not easy so this crystal clear and fun piece by Feek is a bit of a triumph. It is pieces like this one that Bristolians take completely for granted. It is there, it has always been there, that is the way of things. Personally I think that this is rather special, the vegetables are amazing and the animated pizza character is brilliantly painted. At last I get to post it!

784. Gloucester Street, Weston-super-Mare

Last Summer, on a day trip with my family to Weston-super-Mare, I managed to wander off and grab a few moments to get some street art ‘therapy’. I got to see several pieces by JPS, My Dog Sighs and Dan Kitchener amongst others, but this image of a child on the back of a tortoise holding a stick with a slice of pizza stayed with me.

I didn’t know the artist, and I think I have said many times on this blog that I don’t like posting images unless I know who the artist is, although sometimes I break my own rule. In this instance it was the artist herself who broke cover via her Instagram account. It is by Fawn, a local artist and friend of JPS, who helped her with the piece. It is a lovely, playful stencil and just perfect for the location.
