1460. The Bearpit (142)

I have said it many times, it is always a real pleasure when artists from out of town come to Bristol and leave us a gift, and what a gift this was from London artist Tommy Fiendish.

I don’t know too much about the artist other than that he is at art college in London and he enjoys Hip Hop. I did however find this brilliant post on his Instagram feed which I highly recommend taking a look at – it features this piece and the throw up that went over the top of it. What a way to fight back!

A highly detailed and technically strong piece, it was most eyecatching and on the morning I was photographing it, it had really attracted quite a crowd of admirers. Welcome back anytime.

When I first saw this piece, I thought I had found another Gregos mask, but I was wrong. It is a piece by Urban Solid, a street art duo from Italy. To see more of their work, take a read of this great blog by London Calling.

Unfortunately, I looks like the piece has been damaged, there is meant to be something in the mouth of the face, but it has been snapped off. I am a fan of this kind of 3D installation art that challenges the viewer with humour and sometimes political rhetoric. All part of the broad spectrum.
