A stroll along Walcot Street earlier this week.
Just some of the art you can see if you wander along Walcot Street. If your appetite is whetted, you can find more on this council leaflet.
Though I had to search the internet and send an email to find out the name of the artist of the glorious hoarding-sized piece of wall art – Stanley Donwood. Find out more about him and his work here. I thought I recognised it from the very beautiful book* he, Robert Macfarlane (writer), Dan Richards ( (writer), and Richard Lawrence (printmaker) made called Holloway.
The print was put up last year for the Bath Fringe Festival and has stayed there since. Enjoy it while it lasts – sadly it is now showing some small signs of wear. Unlike the Victorian water fountain and horse trough, which has been beautifully restored to its former glory.
* unlike most blogs, I won’t ever link from a book to Amazon. I am part of the boycott in protest at their avoidance of taxes. Instead I hope you might look for books at your local library, or in your local (independent) bookshop – most independent bookshops will order anything for you, and ours even gives discounts where they can obtain a book with a reduction.
