I love Nelson Street. I still can’t get over the fact that I actually mean it… after all it is a dour concrete back street in the centre of Bristol. It is home to some of the best street art out there today. I noticed this new piece opposite the old police station:
This is by Roa. Its big, and its ace. In fact here’s a blog post of it being created that I found: http://www.streetartnews.net/2012/07/roa-new-mural-in-progress-bristol.html
Here’s another shot with a random couple of fellow graf-snappers for scale.
What makes this little story all the better is that just out of shot was a troup of about 30 school kids all with matching back packs being shepherded down the street by their teacher, looking at the art and taking photos. Bless :D
I found out about Roa ( http://roaweb.tumblr.com/ ) After spying another one of his pieces in London a while ago: https://dmcropley.wordpress.com/2010/11/29/street-art-london-27_11_10/
