Laic217, M32 cycle path, Bristol, February 2018

1828. M32 cycle path (19)

I think the reason I didn’t publish this piece by the brilliant Laic217 at the time I photographed it is that the light was all wrong, and the colours of the piece were a bit disappointing. This narrow lane is a nightmare for photography if you are there on a bright day or at the wrong time of day.

The light is so bright above the hoarding, which means the artwork gets darkened by the auto settings. Now if I were a real photographer, which I absolutely not – I am an archivist – I would be able to use manual settings to overcome this conundrum. Enough excuses already…the piece itself is a nother fine work by this irrepressible artist.

This form reverts to his name accompanied by a character which is a distorted face, and the distortion carries on through all the letters as well. Signature bucket hat and smiley instantly tell you who the artist is. I rather like this overlooked piece and am glad that at last I have posted it.

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.
