58. Mark Lane.

Another weird and wacky wheatpaste from Kid Crayon that I posted some time ago to illustrate a haiku, before I started posting about street art.

I really am warming up to his uncomfortable portraits and his choice of spots. It is strange, but until you start looking for his works you simply don’t see them, or if you do, they don’t seem to register. They are all over Bristol, and I have several more lined up to post.

I see this boy/man eating cheese most days, and it always makes me smile.

Swimming party

 

See the crocodile

with happy smiling faces;

snap snap, hurry up!

*Crocodile – an informal line of people, especially children, walking in pairs

**At primary school, decades ago, we had a trip to the London Natural History Museum. My teacher said ‘let’s see the crocodile’…I spent the rest of the day looking for this infernal reptile. I never found it.

57. Nelson Street hoarding (2)

This is an interesting work by the very prolific Sepr. I am not too sure what the story is with this, but the pigeon has the ring! The work is immediately adjacent to the Andy Council mural featured in a recent post.

56. Jubilee Street (1)

This mural rather dates itself with its portrayal of the obsession of the selfie. I guess it is called ‘I’m taking a selfie’. It is one of several works in the immediate vicinity that have the ASK signature on it.

OK, so I am new to all of this, but it took me quite a while to find out who or what ASK is. It turns out that ASK is a Bristol crew, the acronym stands for After School Klub. As far as I can work out, there are four members of the ASK crew, and they are Epok, Sokem, 3Dom and Sepr. I am not sure which of them is behind this particular work, which is perplexing.

In addition to ASK, some of their individual or collaborative works are tagged with ASK KTF or ASKTF. The KTF is another TLA (Three Letter Acronym) which I understand to be ‘Keeping Things Fresh’. I will feature more of their works soon.

UPDATE June 2016 – There are at least 14 or so members of ASK, but I still don’t know which members are responsible for this piece.
