Description

Even before Burning Candy painted the giant skull and crocodile on its upper stories, the gutted hulk of Westmoreland House was a symbol of the dilapidation of Stokes Croft. This very neglect by land-bankers and property owners is why the PRSC, graffiti artists, squatters and other alternative & creative types adopted the area, and how it came to be the Cultural Quarter and Outdoor Gallery we know and love today. The distinctive and always changing walls of Westmoreland House have been one of the neighbourhood's main attractions for almost a decade.

This beautiful design was drawn by Bristol artist object… and is based on a limited edition screenprint printed in Stokes Croft by the PRSC. It depicts many aspects of this iconic building's history and use since its willful dereliction, and celebrates the layers of graffiti which have built up on its walls over the years. 

The Designer

object... is a mixed media artist whose work ranges from miniature collage books to large scale murals and live-painting at events. Their work seeks to bridge the divide between the personal and the political, and between the intuitive and the cerebral. Found materials combined with original elements become new stories and characters.
