Wxttsart, Rozalita and Stika, Albert Park Place, Bristol

Wxttsart, Rozalita and Stika, Albert Park Place, Bristol, January 2022

One of my favourite walls in Bristol and one that changes probably less than once a year. The wall is tucked away in St Paul’s and has been brilliantly painted by a trio of Bristol artists, Wxttsart, Rozalita and Stika.

On the left of the triptych is a wonderful ‘Milk’ piece of graffiti writing by Wxttsart. I have seen a lot of his work about the place, but I think that this might be the first time I have posted anything by him. It will not be the last.

The centrepiece, and my favourite part of the collaboration is by Rozalita. I have said plenty in recent weeks about her diversification, and this is yet another outstanding example of her progress and development. It is a wonderful and slightly peculiar portrait piece with loads of expression and interest. Very lively.

To the right is some fine writing from Stika whose ability to switch from writing to character pieces is second to none. There is something quite logical, mathematical and regimented in his writing here, and it has a uniqueness to it. The colours match those of Wxttsart, and bring a completeness to the whole collaboration. Some lovely stuff here.

Nothing from Rowdy for a long while and then two posts in close succession, what joy. Rowdy is held in high regard in Bristol. He is a friend of Banksy and one of the early graffiti artists emerging from the Bristol scene in the 1980s. Probably the biggest public impact that he has made is his trademark crocodile which adorns various buildings around the city.

This magnificent beast for Upfest’s 75 walls in 75 days festival is the largest and most prominent piece I have seen by Rowdy since his piece in Stokes Croft that came tumbling down with the demolition of buildings around the Carriageworks.

I am very fond of Rowdy’s crocodiles and other crazy creatures and it is fitting that Upfest should honour him with such a large wall, which just happens to be a perfect fit. Wonderful stuff
