2330. Wilder Street (35)

Yup, he’s everywhere, even Wilder Street isn’t exempt from the attentions of Nevergiveup and his urban bunny rabbits. I think that because he is producing these at such a magnificent rate I am going to have to double up some of his bunnys, to conserve posts on Natural Adventures.

I also think that the time has probably come to create a gallery of his work, so watch this space. I rather like this green bunny, and especially like his distorted reflection in the metal sheet to the left. Another one for the growing collection.

2329. L Dub (2)

It was this piece by Sled One that finally motivated me to get myself the the L Dub spot in Lawrence Weston, although I wouldn’t have made it withoug the guidance of Paul Harrison and DJPerks.

This piece alone was worth the trek and to me highlights the extraordinary motivations of street/graffiti artists. L Dub is not exactly a place you would paint if you wanted lots of people to see your work, but you can certainly get on with your creation without much risk of interruption.

The piece itself looks like it is a bit of a dig at the police and is a wild and surreal pig, whose face looks like it is made from a leather bag and is sporting a gun holster with a curious looking weapon. I don’t really know too much about what is going on here, but the quality of the artwork is undeniable.

I am guessing that the words ‘No Face – No Case’ refer to the fact that if your face isn’t seen then there is no evidence for a case against you (I’m not too sure how water-tight that is). Great piece from Sled One.

2328. Wilder Street (34)

The cream always rises to the top they say and this little collaboration from Inkie and Rowdy was put together for this year’s St Paul’s carnival is right up there. It is high-time this wall was repainted and these two have done a great job.

The crocodile across the top is the trademark emblem used by Rowdy and can be found all over the city, although a great number of them have sadly disappeared. The writing from Inkie is actually rather beautiful, and I am guessing needs to be read out with a bit of a West Indian lilt. Fine collaboration.

2327. Devon Road (11)

This is the second piece I have found from relative newcomer, Conrico. In fact I found this one before I came across the diver piece that I posted yesterday. Any artist who recreates Dr Seuss art in any form gets a big (Seuss-like) thumbs up from me.

This writing, bookended by the Lorax and some trufula trees, is nicely done, and the whole piece has an air of calm about it. His style, and I can’t quite pin it down just yet, is a little rough at the edges, and I mean that simply in the sense that it is not crisp and clean like the work of Cheo, for example.

I am really looking forward to seeing what Conrico can do, and like very much what I have seen so far.
