Red Tsunami

    Newer Older

    Piece of the increasingly prevalent street art in the St Paul's district of Bristol. REALLY love this. Whoever thought of it was truly inspired. The Wave here is clearly referencing the Great Wave off Kanagawa by Hokusai but the location on the corner of the building, crashing over two facades is sublime.

      Great pic of a genius site piece. That painting is amazing. Thanks for posting, it really makes you think there's something amazing going on in that person's head.

      yeh I think you are right. I think technically it is in the Parish of St Pauls on Portland Square. Just added the Stokes Croft tag

      Oh when I looked for it on Google maps it showed it to be on the other side of the A38 that's why I thought Stokes Croft.

      Wow! I would love to live in this building. Good job with the processing, it really brings out all the tones and textures in the buildings brickwork.
