1657. Dean Lane skate park (151)

A beautiful ‘TES’ from Slim Pickings, this time in the wonderful claret and blue colours that we might associate with Burnley or West Ham. Once again, and as one would expect, the lines are crisp and clean and the fillings solid and neat.

I think this is the last of Slim Picking’s work that I have in my archive, so I rather hope he will be out there at Dean Lane or somewhere else doing his stuff that he does so well.

1656. St Werburghs tunnel (36)

Only recently on my radar, and now I see her work everywhere. This is a great fun piece by Pekoe in St Werburghs tunnel (a spot that is hosting some really great art lately) which displays her trademark third eye and female portrait.

What make this particular piece so appealing in my eyes is the nicely crafted bubblegum and the way it obscures all that lies behind it with just a hint of transparency. I am enjoying my voyage of discovery with this artist.

1655. Armada Place (12)

This collaboration between Sepr and Daniel Leggs came as a lovely surprise about a week ago while taking a small detour on my way to work. I think the piece had been painted only the day before so it was thankfully free of tags.

I am familiar, as will some readers be, with the work of Sepr who I have written numerous posts about in the past, and whose work I hugely admire. This piece just serves to prolong that admiration as we witness a cat and mouse cartoon where the mouse is looking pretty smug because the cat is trapped, as a footstool, under the man’s legs. Got to love the pink crown too.

Daniel Leggs is not known to me and his Instagram account reveals little other than that he is a graffiti writer. I haven’t seen his work in Bristol before, so I am guessing he’s not from these parts. I think he might have some connection with the No Frills community, and his writing has some similarities with that of Biers. I love the rather abstract colourful fills he has used around the piece, without which it would not be half as good. Another pink crown. Great work boys.

1654. St Werburghs tunnel (35)

Gloopy dayglow acid house skeleton courtesy of Laic217. Is there any more to say about this wonderful piece in St Werburghs tunnel? Well as it happens there probably is…for example I rather like the way he has made his name stand out as if raised from the wall by the skilful application of light and dark shading on the edges of the letters – great technique.

I feel like I haven’t seen much of his work lately and I know I have missed several pieces, but it is always nice to catch one when in the right place at the right time. Where will I find the spray can skeleton next?
