Bristol is a breeding-ground for graffiti-artists, the best known of whom is Banksy.
This Terry Gilliam-like work is not by him, however.
Rest in Peace Dad is a mural just down the road from where I used to live, and is the latest of several murals to adorn this wall; it’s also the most moving.
The ‘portal’ you can see is in fact the blocked doorway to an early 19th-century Regency building in Picton Street, in the Bristol district of Montpelier.
Picton Street is itself named after one of most notorious British generals of the Napoleonic Wars; he died at Waterloo in 1815, but gave his name to several streets in Britain, and even to some public houses.
I wonder what he would have thought of this daubing.
