470. West Street (1)

I love murals, especially ones painted on the sides of buildings – they are large and thus eye-catching, reflect a lot of artistry and skill, and are visible and accessible for everyone to see. And some have layers of intricacy, like this one by Andy Council……..various points of urban interest blended into an animal form. So COOL!

I am re-blogging this from Scooj’s blog, here

Natural adventures

I have been aware of this wonderful Andy Council horse for some time now, but was never quite sure where it was. I actually found it when taking pictures of some other works from Upfest that were a bit of a trek away from the main drag.

Andy Council, West Street, Bristol, September 2016 Andy Council, West Street, Bristol, September 2016 Andy Council is a favourite son of Bristol, and has produced countless murals around the city, many of which remain in place after several years. The distinctive style of blending architectural and urban features (such as the Clifton suspension bridge) with biological form to create his animals is unmistakable and really interesting. One can spend a long time studying all the little details that make up the whole.
