Stunning new mural of Suspension Bridge painted in Hotwells

By martin booth, Friday Jun 28, 2019

His distinctive style has not been seen on the streets of Bristol for some years, but Acerone has returned with a stunning new piece beneath the Cumberland Basin flyover.

Begun on Thursday and finished on Friday, the mural – commissioned by Art Under the Flyover – features the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Avon Gorge as seen from the viewing point near the Create Centre.

Acerone, aka Luke Palmer, has previously had his work exhibited at the RWA, the M Shed and the Colston Hall. He has recently helped bring Tunisian collaborative painting to the UK.
