1846. Upfest 2018 (87)

When I write these posts, I like to think about an audience that probably doesn’t know too much about what they are looking at and maybe, just maybe, want to find out more. I started blogging about street art in Bristol because I found it almost impossible to find out anything about what I was seeing on the streets where I live, and as an inquisitive person I found this mind blowingly irritating. So I had to dig deep and spent many hours finding out what I could. The massive leaps in learning come from actually meeting the artists and getting a little under the skin of what they do. This is all a bit of an aside, but one that was prompted by a train of thought that arose because I had to do a fair bit of research before posting this piece.

The Real Dill, Upfest, Bristol, July 2018

This is by The Real Dill who is a co-founder of Gums and tongue crew/collective/magazine. Based in London, this collective have made the trip to Bristol for Upfest for at least the last two years, in fact I still have a whole ton of their work to post from Upfest 2017! Sticking to The Simpson’s brief, The Real Dill has turned out an absolute gem with this piece, and one that really sticks in my mind. Bright green and pink always a winning combination .
