Move over, Banksy… Cutting edge piece revealed in Stokes Croft…

July 31, 2009

This splendid piece sprung up last Wednesday night… And that it has passed almost unnoticed is arguably its strength.. Nestling between Slix Hamburgers and the Hairdressers, this abandoned shopfront is brought back to life… its Sweeney Todd theme is pertinent and site specific, positive for the area, and well executed…

The shopfront was scrubbed clean, painted…

The piece was prepared on ply, designed to fit in the window spaces…

The new shop, “Mrs. Lovett’s Meat Pies” is fittingly anonymous…

Stokes Croft is fast becoming an Outdoor Gallery… Watch this space…

    Would you buy a meat pie from this establishment, Sweeney Todd springs to mind!

    Holy, you have to love a bit of tongue-in-cheek art right out on the street. You have to really look to realize what you’re seeing. I’d love to see it in person.
