NEVERGIVEUP, Dean Lane, Bristol, August 2018

1670. Dean Lane skate park (152)

It is always a pity when a nice piece gets dogged, especially when it has only been up for a day or two. This particular collaboration between NEVERGIVEUP and Soge was a perfect piece for the curved wall in Dean Lane skate park. It also marked a return of the monster by NGU, something I’ve not seen for a few months.

I had seen the Soge writing on Instagram, and it all really looked rather nice, but I guess some inferior talent had to go and goof it up. I’m all for the turnover of work, especially on ‘legal’ walls, but it is boring to see half-baked throw-ups going up over decent work. Still, we all know the (no) rules and just get on with it.

  1. Ah yes so this was the piece you mentioned. Free walls are exactly what they say on the tin, free walls and I have no problem with turnover but I’m not a fan of the small throw ups that go over about 2 foot of the previous piece that sat there. It feels lazy and uninspired to me. The one here in BCN i mentioned on my post the other day even had ‘in process do not cross’ written on it… buffed completely… it’s a jungle for sure!
