2689. Park Street Avenue

Well, I never did get a clean shot of this great two-tone piece by RichT and now of course it has gone forever, so this is the best I have. RichT has quite an unusual style in which he tends to fill the ‘canvass’ from top to bottom with decoration and detail, there are no ‘white spaces’ in his work – busy and interesting.

This piece was painted on a hoarding half way up Park Street on a building that seems to have been going through a renovation for a very long time. The work has been there for most of it, but wheely bins and scaffolding have been at the scourge of decent street photography. I still felt the piece was worth posting though as I do rather like RichT’s work.

2214. Hepburn Road (9)

In a small alley off Stokes Croft called Hepburn Road (former drug dealing centre of Bristol) is (was) this intriguing piece by Nightways who seems to have cast off the winter doldrums and has become very active in recent weeks.

Unfortunately this two-tone piece was bombed fairly quickly, so I was lucky to get a clean picture of it. The painting is of a woman holding a strand of her hair from which a tiny little monkey is dangling, thus ensuring that there is some ‘monkeyness’ in the piece, which is what we have come to expect from Nightways. I met him last weekend, painting with Laic217 in Moon Street, and there is another of his pieces that I can’t wait to share with you. Nice work.
