Mural celebrates Bristol bowls
Club members at Bristol St Andrews are thrilled with the new artwork on their pavilion.
Bristol St Andrews Bowls Club commissioned local artist Andy from Zasedesign to brighten up their club house. What was once a dirty, blank wall has been transformed into an original mural that celebrates both the game of bowls, and the wonderful city of Bristol.
Andy has been involved in art and graffiti since 1996. Born in Trencin, Slovakia, his work has been displayed in numerous exhibitions and festivals across Europe in a style that combines natural textures with abstract elements.
The club has been working hard over the winter to improve the facilities available to their members. The installation of floodlights (funded by Sport England) have transformed the bowling green into one that is the envy of other local clubs.
Volunteers from the club have also revamped a 1930s scoreboard on the green and made numerous improvements to the pavilion and grounds.
John Pearce, chairman of Bristol St Andrews Bowling Club, writes: “At a time when we are all looking forward to getting back to some semblance of normality, our club continues to thrive.
“The addition of the mural by local artist Zase has considerably brightened up our surroundings and has been met with positive comments by the local community. Featuring not just the game of bowls, but also many of Bristol’s famous landmarks and achievements, we are rightly proud of the impact the mural has on the local area and would encourage people to come and have a look. And when you visit, perhaps consider taking up the game of bowls, which is suitable for all ages and abilities. Our club is keen to welcome new members and is open to all.”
