1163. Moon Street (38)

Perhaps not so subtle in this instance. Here we have another deliciously clean piece of writing from Subtle on the long hoarding in Moon Street. The orange and dark pink sit really well on the grey background. As mentioned recently, it seems that Subtle has become more active of late and I am seeing his work appearing on Instagram more often too.

I like the way the shading on his lettering is fashioned in such a way that there is a vanishing point somewhere behind and below the piece.Other less accomplished writers do much simpler shading to their pieces, as if a light were being cast from one direction. I’m not sure if that makes sence, but I think I know what I mean.

  1. Just a thought: you might want to consider a day out in Cheltenham sometime during the coming Christmas / New Year Hols – wife goes shopping / you take a wander about and get pix of all the street art. Most of the stuff from the paint fest is still looking good – can give you the grand tour

    1. Sounds tempting. I’ll have to see – I’m working between Christmas and New Year, but may get a free day sometime around that period. I don’t know Cheltenham at all, so a guided tour would be just the ticket. If not at Christmas, maybe later in the New Year – thanks for the offer.
