990. Dean Lane skate park (74)

It is not often that this ramp at Dean Lane gets a single piece sprayed over it, so this is a real gem from Bristol-based street artist Feek. It took me a little while to establish the artist, but if you look very carefully at one of the teeth, you can see his signature and in other teeth the word Dom – a tribute to a young man who skated and played basketball here and tragically died last year – and the letters DLH which stands for Dean Lane Hardcore, an annual skating event. This piece is featured in the video from the sidewalk website – well worth a click and view.

Dean Lane Hardcore Funday is a big event for Bristol skaters and brings together skate boarding and graffiti art seamlessly. Feek has done a great job here to make the day just that bit more special.

The more observant viewers might have spotted the NEVERGIVEUP rabbit design in the foreground and Hire piece behind the ramp. Give yourself a pat on the back if you did.

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.
