A RENOWNED Bristol street artist has left his mark at a Portishead venue.

A striking new piece of art has been created on one wall of Mezze at the White Lion in the town’s High Street.

It was created by Cheba, who first picked up a spray can and began creating characters across Bristol in 2000 and has gone on to showcase his work at more than 40 exhibitions across the world.

His designs are created using a mixture of graffiti spray paint as well as oils, acrylics and ink.

Mezze director, Alex Tryfonos, said: “It has been a real honour working with Cheba to bring the popular Bristol street art scene to The White Lion for people to admire.

“He truly is a talented artist and we feel proud to have his impressive creations featured at Mezze to put an art stamp on the map of Portishead.”
