The Ambitious Drifter

Words, Images and The Occasional Noise


Bristol is my staging post to fly to Toulouse, so it’s always a good place to spend a few days. It has some great street art (home of Banksy). I got to see some being made…. well it’s really an ad for a new beer being made by the wonderful Ostrich Hotel.

I also got to finally visit the Bristol M Shed. It’s a relaxed, informal museum about Bristol. I was very interested to see the exhibit on street protests. In this case it was about the lack of disabled access to the new Arnolfini Art Gallery cafe.

Art School – A Song

This is a song I made when I was much much younger. The singer is the wonderful Lizzy Hogan, Ric Grudzinskas played bass, George Sutanovic drums and Linz Norris and myself on guitars. I’ve been making low budget, lo-fi clips to post stuff on Youtube. The images are from my Street Art photo file.

The song is copyright J P Horsam/I M Hogan 1979-2021 as updated. Please refer to my About page for full copyright details regarding the photos.

Photo Safari – Newtown Street Art

I went back yet again to my old stomping ground, Newtown in Sydney. There’s some fascinating buildings, which I’ll blog next. There’s also some great street art. I think I could run a tourist safari out there…..

Great street art and a Dodge Phoenix…. (1961?)

All credit must go the artists… I just pointed a camera
