2313. Moon Street (73)

I am enjoying the amount of work that DNT is getting through at the moment, and so much of it is within a stone’s throw of my walk to work, which makes it particularly easy to find.

This rather intimidating ‘otherworldly’ face is staring out of a set of doors that play host to so many wonderful pieces of street art and which I featured last week in my Thursday doors post. I rather like the way, deliberately or otherwise, DNT has managed to incorporate the work (underneath) of abstract artist Run Z into this by using the same blue to accent the eyes.

Thursday doors – 4 July 2019

Door 77 – Same door, different faces.

Happy 4 July to all those for whom it is a holiday. Here in the UK it is just another day, but it is Thursday, and that means doors.

I am being a little lazy this week using archive material to bring you the same door in Moon Street, one of my favourite street/graffiti art spots, but with different looks over the last few years – I might do this with a few more graffiti doors when I am pushed for new content.

With apologies to regulars who might have seen most of these images before.

That just about wraps it up for this week, maybe some more Dorchester doors next time. Please go take a look at the Norm 2.0 blog – the originator of Thursday Doors where there are links to yet more doors in the comments section at the end.

All the best

2021. Moon Street (59)

In a spot in Moon Street that is favoured by Laic217 and Rezwonk is this relatively new piece by Run Z. Like most of the abstract artists in Bristol, he has his own particular and distinctive style. Usually only spraying in one or two colours Run Z creates these swirling designs that have an organic feel to them.

Since visiting Lawrence Hill roundabout the other day, I note that Run Z is much more productive that I had first thought, but perhaps just not in the places I’m used to looking. I like his work and would like to see more of it… I’m especially interested in seeing how it develops.

1802. New Stadium Road (8)

I haven’t seen anything from Run Z for a little while, so it was good to come across this great abstract piece in the little foot tunnel in New Stadium Road. This is a favourite haunt for Deamze, Soke and Voyder, but others come here too.

Run Z always brings something refreshing in his work as it is unlike most of the rest of the street art in the city. His patterns and exceptional colour choices set his work apart from the writers and character painters. He joins the small band of abstract artists whose work I love to see.

1649. The Bearpit (156)

These are the characteristic swirling whirling abstract patterns created by Bristol artist Run Z. Although I haven’t seen that many of his pieces, they do seem to crop every now and again and they are instantly recognisable as his work.

The works will often follow a colour theme and this one seems to incorporate a green, blue and white palette. There is something of a stained glass window feel to these works and in fact I think the designs would make fabulous windows.

1606. The Bearpit (153)

Run Z is a Bristol abstract artist that I have not yet had the fortune to run in to yet and one about whom I know very little. His pieces are very distinct, using bright colours and organic patterns that swirl across the wall.

We are lucky in Bristol to have several specialists in abstract street art like Run Z and I think it all adds to the overall complexion and variety of the Bristol street art scene. I’m on a mission to hunt down more of his work.

1522. The Bearpit (149)

Once again I am introducing an artist new to these pages…I don’t know how I’m going to keep up with only two posts a day. Some good work may never see the light of day. This fine abstract piece is by Bristol-based artist Run Z, and it is one of two that I hve spotted in Bristol. I have not been aware of his work before and I think he is reasonably new to the scene.

There aren’t too many abstract artists on the streets of Bristol, so Run Z is among the elite group that includes Mr Klue and Decay, both of whose work I admire. This piece uses complementary colours in organic swirls, creating an overall effect that is rather pleasing to the eye. If you look close up, it is all a bit raw, but step back and it makes sense. Nice to see something a bit different.
