I took a short walk this morning after breakfast and discovered a whole ton of street art and graffiti in Moon Street near Stokes Croft. The problem with most of the works here is that they are unsigned, or by artists/sprayers unknown to me (so far).
This crocodile is by Sesk, but I am unclear about whether Sesk is an individual or a crew. In the course of my research however, I did find this article in the Bristol Post from November 2015, which indicates that the authorities are clamping down a bit on some taggers, of which Sesk appears to be the ‘ace of spades’.
Some copy from the article reads as follows:
“A police crackdown on graffiti tagging across Bristol will see a man appear at court.
The man has been reported to court for 89 separate offences of Criminal damage across central Bristol.
The damage relates to illegal graffiti that has been sprayed, drawn and painted onto public and private property across the city.
It is alleged the man is responsible for the “SESK” tag, which police say is one of the most prolific in the city.”
None of this though has helped me find out more about Sesk.
