Jamie Scanlon, who goes by the moniker JPS, has been based in Germany in recent months but returned to his hometown to brighten up some of Weston’s bare walls.

The artwork features some well-known people and characters, including rapper Eminem, cartoon Bugs Bunny and Marvel character Loki.

The work features JPS’ trademark humour, with amusing slogans often included beside the art.

A roman legionary holding a computer keyboard features in one piece by the Seaton Hotel in Richmond Street. It has been called Keyboard Warrior.

The Loki artwork is on the side of MT Games in Meadow Street, and a piece featuring a young boy handing a world to a girl, called The World Is Not Enough, is in Baker Street, by the Weston Hospicecare shop.
