The last part of my Bristol Trilogy – (After SHOP and Exploring Bristol)
I’ll take you to Art From The New World, wander through St Nicholas’ Market and into Blaze! Sounds pretty dramatic eh? It wasn’t.. but it was beautiful…
Wafting into the Bristol Museum, guided there by curiosity, I was quickly stopped in my tracks. There before me was the god of all things cute and plasticy – A giant cartoon ice cream by Buff Monster. I knew I’d like this place and quickly found myself guided towards an intriguing sounding exhibition – Art From The New World – 49 of the best emerging and established US artists who share inspirational themes such as dark humour, surrealism and a deep affinity in pop culture.
I loved this exhibition, it perfectly reflected a more and more appreciated form of fine art which I would much rather have on my wall than any other art piece.
My googlemaps app then guided me to St Nicholas’ Market which I had been tipped off about my a kind Twitter follower. This is no ordinary market but a place a little reminiscent of Brighton, a covered and sheltered maze of narrow passages, stalls and odd shaped shops selling just the things for creative types!
