Run rowdy run

RUN is a London based street artist originally from Italy whose works can be seen adorning street corners from China to Senegal and after some previous visits to Cardiff he has now paid a visit to our neighbours just across the water in Bristol.

So on his whistlestop tour of Bristol back in February, Run was joined by local lad Rowdy to paint on one of the city’s back alleys.

Set in the Stoke’s Croft area of Bristol the duo began by adding their trademark designs to the doors of a back street taxi garage.

Run’s recognisable style shows a level of detail and complex imagery through vivid rendering of hands and faces in bright, arresting colours – whilst the bright sketchy skyline from Rowdy complements it well.

A big thanks to Alex Ellison who managed to capture the front of the taxi garage when it wasn’t in operation – thanks mate.

Just up from this garage was another trademark piece from Run and this… well…um… running hand! #answersonapostcard

A bright lime green base complete with the tagline ‘Get your wall done – 5.99 only’ added at the bottom for much amusement! Along with a now signature head from Run.

Rowdy and Run took part in a small video for Li Graffiti and also contained some bit from Llanrumney and other bits around Cardiff.

And next to these garages was another wall just begging for some street art where Rowdy has obliged and painted this very chilled and relaxed cat – bringing a taste of the Carribean to Bristol.
