Pulp Fiction, Shoreditch

This piece features Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta from Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, with both characters holding bananas rather than guns. In 2007 TFL painted over the image claiming that images of this nature create an atmosphere of neglect.
Later a new image appeared at the site with the characters holding real guns instead of bananas, but wearing banana costumes. This was later replaced with Ozone's Angel.

A print of this art is available from WorldGallery.

Death stencil on the Thekla

Believed to be based on a 19th Century etching, this piece appears just above the waterline on the Thekla, a bar/club boat in the East Mud Dock, Bristol. The skeleton rower was painted around to preserve it when the boat was refurbished in 2008.

Gorilla In A Pink Mask

This is Banksy's Gorilla In A Pink Mask which was unfortunately painted over recently when the former social club in Eastville, Bristol, was converted to a cultural centre. This was one of Banksy’s earlier pieces, at over 10 years old.

You can buy the paper print from EasyArt on fine print or water colour paper, and also on canvas.

The naked man

One of my favorite works is the naked man hanging from a window on Park Street in Bristol City centre. This graffiti art appeared in June of 2006. At the time the council had threatened to have it removed but after a public vote in which over 95% of those surveyed voted for it to stay, the council backed down.

You can buy a custom print on paper or canvas of the naked man at WorldGallery, or from EasyArt if you like a framed version
