Going back to our Street Art roots
For ShipArtTM vehicle number 13 we have decided to go back to where it all began for us – Bristol. 10 years ago our ShipArtTM services grew out of the emergence of the Bristol Street Art Scene and the most iconic street artist ever! We are celebrating our official 10th year with a new collaboration with Bristol Artist Sophie Long – creator of exuberant animal portraits.
ARTIST SOPHIE LONG
What can we expect from Sophie Long?
Sophie’s work is easily accessible to the public – on walls, homes, industrial sites and open air shows throughout the area. Sophie also creates endangered species “drops”. Using “spray cans” (the tools of her trade) to create small pieces of art to leave around Bristol as part of her “Bristol Poach” free art hunt.
Sophie works in acrylics and explores the boundaries of expressive art, usually in the way of exuberant animal portraits. Arguably she is perhaps best-known for her bees of which we have at least 3 in our Wokingham office and yet more at our private homes.
