In September 2016 the Bristol Cider Shop moved to the new Wapping Wharf area into a customised shipping container, and Pete the owner asked me to create the interior decor of the shop. I had previously painted his van with apple tree stencils and he wanted a similar style for the shop with a hint of Bristol and pirates. The Matthew Ship which I stencilled in the background is moored right next to the shop.
The new shop required a pillar right in the middle. We both agreed it would be great to transform it into an apple tree with the illusion of foliage on the ceiling. I cut some new freehand stencils and went for a sophisticated look. The whole job was painted on boards in my studio and then fitted into the shop.
