832. Dean Lane skate park (57)

Another lunchtime walk, and another chance meeting with one of Bristol’s graffiti artists. It’s the sunny weather you know, it brings them out onto the streets. When I took these pictures, I wasn’t sure who the artist was, and he was being rather evasive about revealing his name to me. I didn’t pursue the matter.

We had a good conversation about the rules of spraying and about taggers and the merits of legal and non-legal walls. All interesting stuff really. Sadly I didn’t get a finished version of the piece, but it wasn’t too different from this picture (UPDATE – I went back a couple of days ago and got a shot of the final work). Turns out the artist (who posted his work on Instagram) is Rusk who is one of the RAW (Read and Weep) crew. I have featured a piece by Rusk once before, and have others yet to publish. A really nice guy and central figure in Bristol’s graffiti art scene.

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.
