3233. Brunel Way bridge (60)

All this time I have been labelling thissprawling spot Brunel Way bridge, but it is rather more like a fly-over. No matter, bridge is what I have called it, so that it is what it is called. At the southenr end of the site there is a little little hot spot of stencils by Remko of which this is the second that I have posted.

The Einstein stencil is perfectly suited to a column, although I’m not too clear what the robot thing is all about. Maybe it is a comment on the AI future that we are facing, maybe not. As far as stencils go, this is rather unusual and it looks like the lines may have bee augmented with a Posca pen or something similar. Fun and original art from Remko.

I have seen a few pieces by Remko in Bristol over the last few years, but this is the first (and will not the last) that I have posted on Natural Adventures. Remko is a Bristol artist who does both studio and street art work and indeed, while researching for this post I realise that one of my ‘unknown’ posts from a while back was actually by Remko (see below). Most of Remko’s art is stencil work and I have seen this particular character in a few places in Bristol.

The stencil is witty and slightly macabre showing Disney’s Mickey Mouse squished in a mousetrap with the hashtag #mickeydeadmouse. I rather like the use of bold colours in this stencil which makes a change from the more common graded multi-layer stencils we see. Fun and well hidden. More to come from Remko soon.
