This piece is one from the archives going back to August last year and is by the enigmatic OHMS. I have had a major breakthrough recently in finding out a little more about the artist because I stumbled across his Instagram account @thelocknessmonster.
Now at the very least I will be able to see when he has created something new, and might even be able to work out where it is. I particularly like this piece because it has a marine theme and a rather nice feature lobster.
I get the feeling that OHMS or thelocknessmonster (what should I call him?) is in touch with his natural history side, because so many of his pieces feature wildlife. I do rather like his work.
This is a quick one from 45RPM on the long wall in Moon Street, opposite the Lakota. 45RPM has a broad range of pieces that he likes to spray, one of which is his graffiti burners. This is typical of many that can be found dotted around the city.
The colours are vibrant and eye-catching, and sets this piece out alongside other not-quite-so-good pieces.
Another colourful piece of wildstyle graffiti art from Whysayit, this time from the hoardings down by the Gardiner Haskins car park. I took this picture on a very bright winter’s day, and unfortunately there is a bit of a shadow across the work, which is a pity.
I am loving Whysayit’s work. Same general form with creative and imaginative approaches to outlining and filling.
It is great to see that Silent Hobo is back and busy. Back from where or doing what I am not sure, but in recent weeks he has hit the streets and that is good news. This piece is sited at the entrance to St Werburghs tunnel, which is fortunate, because the light quality is good there.
Once again we see the slogan ‘you are golden’ and there is something forgiving and loving in that. I like his representation of young people, always positive and upbeat.
The gold frame sets the piece off nicely and complements the green hoodie and yellow sneakers. Looking forward to a whole load more from Silent Hobo this year.
