423. Dean Lane skate park (17)

From one of the hot spots for graffiti art in Bristol, I recently found this quick piece in chrome by Soker. Any artist that paints this wall knows that their work will be gone in a matter of days, so knowing that, one can’t help thinking that they do this because they just love doing it.

What a wonderful way to be. To use one’s creative talents and produce things because you enjoy it. Surely this is what life is about? I think that what street art gives us all is a reminder that creativity is something we all have capacity for and can all celebrate. Even people like me who spend their lives chained to a desk. Street art is liberating and can set us all free if only for a moment. Soker sets me free.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
