I first saw this work as it was being completed by ObjectØØØ on 21 April 2016. I stopped to have a chat with the artist who works nearby. The PRSC (People’s Republic of Stokes Croft) Outdoor gallery is a space where artists can display their works legally and with permission.
ObjectØØØ was putting this piece together because the previous work by Cheba had been badly tagged, after only a matter of days, so he decided to replace it.
As I have come to expect from ObjectØØØ’s work, there is a strong political/social message accompanied by swirls of whitewash and subtle patterning as you draw closer. This is quite a stark piece, where the message forms the framework for the artwork.
I am really growing to like these curious pieces and rather hope to bump into ObjectØØØ again soon to talk more with him about his work.
