As I got off the bus in Kentish Town, London…… Just happened to stumble into a car wash yard to snap some fun street art by “The Lurkers” and “Mau Mau” If anyone knows who painted the first snap in my collage please let me know!

Tweeting Back

I was bound to go back to Bristol to snap the finished artwork of Irony &  Boe from their collaboration along Back Road, during the Upfest 2017 street art festival. I guess this is a kind of tweeting so a birdie tells me!

DJ Derek

Two Bristol legends just a stones throw away came under my radar. One I was seeking out and one by pure chance. The mural above “One Love” is a tribute to a local man well-known in Bristol as DJ Derek. My pure chance discovery was painted by Serp, Deam2, Piro and Rpm on the side of a house along Richmond Avenue. I only discovered this artwork in my search for a very faded Banksy nearby under the St Andrews Street sign.  Another bonus to the left of “One Love” is a Stewy full size stencil tribute to DJ Derek. Sadly Derek went missing in 2015 and was found dead eight months later in March 2016 aged 78. The story of the ex accountant turned reggae DJ can be found on these two links. https://www.bristol247.com/news-and-features/news/dj-dereks-death-confirmed-at-cribbs-causeway-1457700279/   https://www.bristol247.com/news-and-features/people/obituary-dj-derek/
