The Kingsdown Wine Vaults, Kingsdown, Bristol

kingsdown

The owner of the Kingsdown Wine Vaults wanted a particularly striking image to hang outside of her business and gave me a completely free hand as to its design.

Researching the building and its surroundings, something that I love to do before starting work on the image, I found documentation in the central library in Bristol, to suggest that the buildings were once used to house prisoners before they were taken to court. A place steeped in history with stories of Cromwell, battles, forts and ‘turtle soup?’
