734. Dean Lane skate park (42)

This collaboration was in Dean Lane for quite a while before eventually being painted over by Inkie. I have held back on writing about it, because I wasn’t at all familiar with its creators. Of course, good things come to those who wait, and I eventually tracked down the artists thanks to the miracles of the Interweb.

The collaboration is by Paris, Haka and Mustard Tiger, who must have been passing through, as they aren’t local Bristol artists. It is a curious piece and quite different from much of the stuff we see around here. Even the colours used are quite unusual.

The left third is by Paris, the middle section by Haka and the right hand side, a rather psychedelic piece, is by Mustard Tiger. I rather like each of the individual pieces in isolation, but I am not sure the collaboration works as a whole. It might just be a familiarity thing, but I don’t really see the thread between the pieces (colours, story, style)…I might be missing something. There is also a small tribute to CK One.

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.
