Sir Terry Pratchett Graffiti appears in London & Bristol

Graffiti artists in Bristol and London have paid tribute to Terry Pratchett who passed away last month.

The Bristol piece in Stokes Croft is by artist Fiver and features 2 of Pratchett’s most memorable characters in a cartoon-y style with Pratchett’s living chest from The Colour of Magic at the centre of the artist’s tag.

Fiver wrote on his Flickr account: “Discworld piece to mark the passing of a great man. Terry Pratchett, rest in peace.”

The piece on Brick Lane in London features a lifelike portrait of Sir Terry surrounded by the same characters as Fiver’s piece along with some Discworld-y scenery.

One of the artists, Jim Vision said: “It was very inspirational reading [Pratchett’s] books growing up … it takes things from our world and twists it into something quite incredible.”

He added that: “It’s really important to commemorate people’s lives, especially somebody who brought so much to UK literature” and that the piece is still being worked on, so will “eventually span even more of the former Shoreditch station’s walls.”

Here are a few close-ups of the Bristol piece:

“You ignore graffiti at your peril. It’s the heartbeat of a city. It’s the voice of the voiceless.”

-Terry Pratchett
