Dabuten Tronko, High Street, Bristol, July 2018

1624. High Street

The first time I saw anything by Dabuten Tronko was round about the time of Upfest 2017 and I immediately liked his deconstructed rowing boats. At Upfest, artists tend to come and then go and if you get lucky they come the following year. Well I’m not sure if he planned on being at Upfest 2018, but he did come to Bristol in June and left two fine pieces of which this is the first.

There is something rather compelling about the theme he often chooses for his wall work, with a focus on small wooden rowing boats in a state of disassembly. I wonder if this is symbolic of anything in particular or an unconscious outpouring, but I expect there is quite a lot that lies beneath the surface of this work.

Note the Whysayit YSAE tag at the top of the piece.

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.
