So i was walking down the Christmas Steps again today, not something i often do, and came across a guy painting some boards outside a shop front with some cans and stencils.
Turns out first of all that there’s a cool looking new shop on the Christmas Steps, with your usual selections of trainers, t shirts and artwork (must go back and check it out).
But also the guy, Tribe, who was just painting the shop signs, having painted a lovely totem pole piece at the back of the shop, is newish to Bristol after 18 years in France, and has some proper skills.
Was getting late, the light was fading, but got some snaps of the work in action.
The original sketch for the signs
On the left, an Angry…
…and on the right a Dave’s (not quite finished)
Just some of the stencils, paints and masking tape that go into this piece.
There’s even better on his blog
Your hairstyle says a lot about who you are, doesn’t it.
