3868. Dean Lane skate park (423)

From time to time unusual pieces appear in the regular spots in Bristol, unusual not only for the content or subject matter but also for the rarity of the artist’s work. This is a piece from a street artist called Stif or Stiff, who I know absolutely nothing about, but who has hit this Dean Lane wall a couple of times over recent months.

This piece from January this year features a kind of of robot wasp creature in grey and lime green. Definitely an unusual piece but set out nicely on the black background. I have another more recent piece from the artist which I will try to post soon.

10. Claremont Road

Another large mural from Zase and Dekor just off the Gloucester Road in Bishopston.

I’m not sure how long it has been here, but I live nearby, and I can’t recall seeing it before.

I would love to know the backstory to this one. The wasps are beautifully sprayed and the movement in their wings cleverly portrayed. As usual we have the trademark Zase wildstyle signature taking up a large part of the piece, but not dominating it.

A good mural.
