Held for it’s tenth year now – Angus is no stranger as an artist to his home town of Bristol where the festival takes place over the last weekend of July.
His recent work has featured themes from cartoon characters to vintage computer games and here is no exception.
Angus’ work also contains a lot of humour as demonstrated by the original state of his wall as the festival began!
The wall was prepped and a spacelike background added before the first of many robot characters was applied to the wall beginning with Bender from Futurama – yes that is a beer in his hand!
A crowd gathered to watch the impressive artist at work and see how critical the placement of each tile was as the R2D2 robot took shape.
On returning to this spot Angus had completed all the robots which now included R2D2, BB8 and Eva on his masterpiece.
Next the grouting was being applied to help weatherproof the installation.
Angus has produced some fantastic work over the last few years and usually combines stencil with his tile art.
Here he has stencilled in the text:-
“Laugh now, but one day we’ll be in charge!”
A small BMO from Adventure Time was proudly sitting next to a BB8 – whom is shown above before and after a wash down!
This highly skilled piece was carefully crafted throughout the day and once ready the grouting was washed down to reveal all of the gleaming tiles!
