Back Round Moon Street

Love Moon Street as ever, it’s been the home of lots of work for years and years now, so given it’s been a while, it seemed worth an update of what’s round there at the mo…

Some bits haven’t changed obviously, so not going to blog the lot, but this chap’s always jolly…

…a panda stencil by one of the alleys under fashionable 51 02. Just for those who come across these posts through predictable google searches, it’s not by Banksy.

Round the corner a bit, the wall of the Full Moon’s been filling up steadily for a year or so now. Some bits have been there for yonks obviously, the SPQR spaceman and the Awkward work…

But these BS51 pieces are new-ish…

…nice to see some more freehand ishwork from the chap for a change.

This Fake stencil’s been blogged before, but here’s a close up anyway.

Bit further along, the donkeys everyone photographs.


Round the corner up Moon Street, the massive Burning Candy production, as painted during the filming of ‘Tags to Riches’ is still holding up well, looks all the better for some tidy 3Dom work next to it.

A comment on getting up for school?

Not completely new but still looking pretty fresh further up the street…

..nice to see another rendering of that bunny you see about.

This door must have a good few layers of history on it under there, now a nice sky scene…


Finally, os these were done a short while after the main painting, not sure the Lokey and Haka work on Lakota got put up on here in the end. So here they are for the record…


… and good Mr Lokey.

More Christmas Shows…

Remember when it was just 12 days of xmas putting on a show for christmas? Things have come a long way in the last couple of years, here’s a couple more shows coming up, in addition to the Inkie and Weapon of Choice shows blogged last week.

First up, the ever reliable Art-El crew along with some fine art bods, doing something a bit further away from the grafstreeturban side of things than usual, but a big line up and an interesting new venue should make this one worth wandering along to this Friday night.

Picton Mews is off Picton Street down towards the Thali/Bells Diner part of it, where this used to be if memory serves.

Here’s the chat…

Art-el & Tunnadine Fine Art present ‘Advent’

Advent aims to provide a visual seasonal treat and bring an end to the period of expectant waiting, brightening up the festive season with a unique exhibition of new ideas and visual delights.

This show will bring you work from a wave of the galleries newer artists who present an aesthetic of visually challenging work, ranging from classic figurative portraiture to the grimy and still developing genre of the street. Although this show will be far removed from the usual urban/street art crew they are both primarily associated.

Selected from each gallery is a mix of local, international and national artists from as far afield as the USA, Portugal and Swansea!
High Renaissance, Fran, ill joseph, Joshua Barber, Leanne Ellis, Motorboy, Pedro Matos, Ria Hill, Simon Riley and Tom Hine.
The period of expectant waiting and preparation will cease and commence simultaneously at 7 p.m. on Friday 4th December at the newly discovered and delightful ‘2° Degrees Gallery’, a new creative space situated in Montpelier, in the heart of Bristol’s creative quarter.

2 Degrees Gallery, 2 Picton Mews (right off of Picton Street), Montpelier BS6 5PB
Preview will be on Friday 4th December 6.30pm until 10pm.
Then open from the 5th to the 20th December
(Wed to Sun 11am until 7pm)

The day before, this Thursday, there’s a shorter show opening down at Hamilton House on Stokes Croft, from 1LoveArt. On from Thursday 3rd to Monday 7th December, the whole thing then moves down to The Lanes down by Bridewell from the 12th December to the 12th Jaunary. Definitely ‘Urban’ art this one, if that’s your kind of thing, although there are a few writers in there amongst the stencils.

PRSC Gallery And Auction

So, the PRSC project is becoming more self funding, and has finally sorted out that the way to do this with art coming out of their ears is to set up a permanent gallery and sell stuff on. The gallery opened last Friday night, and is a dry run for setting up the first permanent gallery in Stokes Croft in the new year, something that kinda has to happen if the place is to be ‘Bristol’s cultural quarter’ really.

There’s a whole load of different stuff in there, from pieces from fairly well known artists to four pieces done by homless people from the area. Totally democratic and open to all then, and all really nicely laid out too. The PRSC folks should go and be management consultants the way they sort so much professional looking stuff  out on a shoestring budget. Still though, goes to show that where’s there’s a will…

So, the pieces, first up a chicken stencil. none of the pieces have names on, so hard to be sure who they’re by, but think this one may fit in with other ones that have been on here before.


All sorts of work here, not just graf, or stencil, big wide range.


This was an interesting wall…


…don’t see these as much as you used to…


…and could have sworn those helicopter stencils are Banksy ones, but apparently they’re not, and having checked some old photos of Banksy helicopters, they are slightly different. Odd coincidence!


More bits on the other wall…


…including some very much graf based pieces.


Along from that these bits…


…love the Magic piece top right there.


Wouldn’t be the PRSC without postcards and souvenir rock would it?


With the massive fear of offending someone, think this may be one of the works by a local homeless person. Text over the top reads ‘Messed up crying drunk’ and down the left it says ‘Getting better’. Really cool to see this sort of work in here too, in a weird sort of way.


More bits down the other side.


A big work on the back wall, comedy.


A BS51 ‘Silver surfer’ piece.


And one of the skeleton stencils you see round that area a fair bit.


Like the piece that used to be down by the end of Ashley Road, only smaller…


…and with authentic street commentary too by the looks of it.


Finally this crazy piece about the crazyness that’s going on round there at the moment.


The big party for it all, and the close of the auction, is next Friday night (19th December), have a wander in if you’re in the area, it’s all starting at 99p, and is all being sold for a good cause to boot.

UPDATE: For those who haven’t been that way before, it’s at the Stokes Croft end of Jamaica Street, ‘opposite the back of the brothel’ as the direction goes.
