So, I got the chance to go to Bristol, well, I grabbed it with both hands! There is so much to see it is mind boggling. I took over a 1000 photos, I’m still sorting through them. Apologies in advance for not knowing the names of all the artists.Mr Ricks, part of great wall in the St Pauls area.Dora, awesome piece, not so awesome photo due to the parked cars, my excuse and I’m sticking to it.Flava 36, loved this character, saw him in a few spots. Burning Candy, splendid, why can’t every building be painted like this 🙂Banksy, when in Rome and all that…Cosmo Sarson, fantastic, I defy anyone to not smile when they see this!Stood ages waiting for the sun to go in, to get a decent shot of this, it was worth it though 🙂3Dom, thought I recognised this, and then realised I’d seen this artist in action at City of Colours.The Lakota nightclub, featuring the work of Epok, Soker, Cheo, 3Dom, Sepr, Jody and others. Robbie the Robot, a real blast from the past! I found something indicating this might be an artist called Paris, but can’t find any verification, and googling Paris Bristol really doesn’t help…Pixel Pancho, first one I’ve seen in the flesh. Aryz, first one I’ve seen in the flesh.Conor Harrington, first one I’ve seen in the flesh, even if it was at a distance through mesh and a fence.Mariusz Waras, Nick Walker and El Mac, this whole street was just staggering, nearly broke my neck more than once, because I was too busy looking up.Cheo, hiphop Wallace and Gromit, ace!Funky zebra by Trix. Dale Grimshaw, beautiful.Herakut, my brains melting.Andrew Burns Colwill, wonderful piece featuring the famous Bristol crocodile 😉 Stephen Quick, portrait of Benedict Cumberbatch.Soker and Cheo, Mysterio vs Spiderman. Dank, thought this piece was amazing, again had to wait for the sun to go in before I could get a decent shot.Whoam Irony, another first for me.
I know a fair few of these pieces have been widely seen online, but I’m putting them on here because I went and stood in front of them and it was great to be able to do that and to appreciate them in a whole new light. The two days were exhausting but totally unforgettable, thank you to the two people who made it all possible, I am forever in your debt. I will be doing another post on Bristol after my next Sheffield blog, showing some of the less well known pieces.
