Silent Hobo and Logoe, M32 roundabout, Bristol, December 2018

1925. M32 roundabout J3 (112)

Even when it seems like there is nothing much going on, mainly because of the damp weather, I find that I am rarely disappointed when I go to check a wall to see if there is anything new.

My reward for nipping down to the M32 roundabout a week or so back was this magnificent, and rare, collaboration by Silent Hobo and Logoe. I met this pair painting together about a year ago, and they clearly enjoy each other’s company.

Judging from the ‘Rad Dads’ slogan, I am guessing that this is a message about the status of the artists. I wonder if the depiction in the Silent Hobo half of this piece is a self-portrait (almost certainly) and whether he actually painted this piece with a child strapped to his chest.

Logoe’s writing is distinctive, from the little I have seen, having a sort of joined-up hand writing look to it. Overall I love this collaboration and the sentiments of pride in, and love for their children. Great stuff for the Christmas holidays.

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.

  1. I was lucky enough to arrive just as they had finished their respective pieces and they definitely enjoy each others company. Logoe was visiting Bristo land they had obviously decided to hit that wall early on a Monday morning. Both were up for a chat and Silent Hobo’s piece is a self portrait although he didn’t have a child strapped to his chest at the time of painting, thankfully lol . . .
    A brilliant piece, as always, and a joy to see it literally just finished . . .
