Maybe has made Brunel Way his spiritual home and several of the columns holding up the dual carriageway bear the delightful small pieces created by the relative newcomer. Although Maybe has branched out into a couple of other spots, the vast majority of his work is here.
Two more of his pieces are featured in this post. It seems a little unfair that I bunch them together, but he is so prolific that if I didn’t post two at a time, some might never get posted at all. This first one is a sensational colour burst of faces in a circular pattern and in rainbow sequence, although there is an extra blue/green colour included for good measure and symmetry.
The second piece combines the egg character he painted before with his planetscape that he has been developing to great effect over recent weeks. Curious and compelling. I recommend a trip to this spot which has become a bit of a gallery of Maybe’s work.
Judging by the number of photographs I have of these delightful small pieces by Maybe, I will be posting them pretty regularly over the coming weeks and months, which can only be a good thing. I expect it won’t be too long before I have enough to do a gallery. I love this kind of quirky and different street art, as it represents another element on the vast spectrum of styles and techniques used to brighten up our streets.
Maybe tends to paint only under Brunel Way, and I haven’t seen any of his work anywhere else in Bristol. This is a calm and meditative piece that really demonstrates how far Maybe has come in such a short space of time. The signature profile face is in the form of a balloon, but in this piece the introduction of planets in a star-studded sky is a theme that the artist returns to in several more works. Lovely to see, and something a little different.
