When you spend your spare time searching out and writing about street/graffiti art, you develop an amazing peripheral vision for noticing something different, something new, in the places that you visit most often. I was walking to the office last week (a rare occurrence these days), and from the corner of my eye I saw this bright flash of colour behind a hedge on the wall of The Boston Tea Party, where an Alex Lucas piece once proudly stood. The colour belongs to this outstanding piece by Kid Krishna, which I assume is rather new.

For me at least, this piece was an extra surprise because it is by Kid Krishna, and to date I have only seen his writing, and wasn’t aware that he painted art pieces as well. This is an unusual, but compelling portrait piece in bright colours and almost in a cubist style. Great to see that Kid Krishna has several strings to his bow, and a great addition to his portfolio.

Often associated with Face 1st, Moon Street has a new kid on the block in the shape of Kid Krishna, whose work has been appearing all over Bristol over recent months. This is the first of his pieces to appear on Natural Adventures and highly unlikely to be his last.

Kid Krishna’s writing is very distinctive, with long thin letters, looking like planks of wood stacked in a pile. I believe the letters spell out KRISHNA, but I could be mistaken, such is the disguise. Expect to see a whole lot. Ore from the artist in this blog, I already have a considerable back-catalogue of his work in my archive. Definitely something creative and different.
