I had the very good fortune this weekend to watch and document a wonderful piece of art being created in tribute to Nelson Mandela.

The Work was commissioned  by PRSC and painted by Paintsmiths  artists  Felix Braun ( FLX ) and Jake Dones ( Dones ) on Jamaica Street , Stokes Croft in Bristol.

Street Artist’s and Graffiti Artist’s

I live in a beautiful city that opens its doors to it’s very own artists as well as some of the worlds best artists as well. I often get to meet and take photos of there work, which is always a pleasure to see and to be involved with. I have way to many photos to upload for a post and many I cant show due to people faces being shown so sorry I can only post a few, so I’m sorry I cant include everyone ….

It’s always worth havering a look at The Bristol Graffiti & Street Art Flickr site

Straight ish Graffiti

Taking a straight head on shot of any street art or graffiti normally doesn’t work for me and these few are the exception to the rule as I like the portrait / work in progress type of shot. There’s  always a good variety of  street art and graffiti on the The Bristol Graffiti & Street Art page on Flickr
