Ebee, Upfest, Bristol, July 2017

983. Upfest 2017 (36)

Watching the evolution of this piece by Ebee was fascinating. I don’t think the weather was very helpful, and it probably took a lot longer to complete than the artist might have originally envisaged.

Ebee is from London and has been painting since the 1980s, which puts him in great company, and even from this piece you can see that his work is influenced by the early New York graffiti.

I like taking these ‘in progress’ shots because it is interesting to see how the artist sets about their work and the sequencing of how they lay down the composition.

This is a really accomplished piece of wildstyle writing that incorporates an element of 3D style to the letters, although they are contorted and in differing planes, which makes this different from more conventional 3D art. The piece spells out ‘Ebee’ although it takes a while to get your ‘eye in’. A lovely piece of writing.

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.
