Bristol’s most unique find since they dug up the ‘Bristol Dinosaur’ ANDY COUNCIL returns with his solo show at Weapon of Choice Gallery, 14 St Michel’s Hill, Bristol BS2 8DT.
Mega City Fauna combines the artist’s celebrated style with some new departures and will be unmissable for fans old and new. Expect to see some new takes on the Bristol cityscape from this internationally acclaimed artist and illustrator. Andy brings us his beasts on a large and small scale and the result is a menagerie of the Bristol creatures rendered in a collectable and affordable way. Original artwork from as low as £30!

I use my drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely
intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to
dinosaurs mobilized by ‘lots of stuff’. I was trained in the
traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced
by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others. I use a combination of
graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen to create my beasts and I am
now assaulting windows and walls with my unique menagerie.
