Hire, Dean Lane, Bristol, June 2019

2308. Dean Lane skate park (228)

I said in a post a few days ago that Hire had come out of hibernation, and this, as if to prove it, is the second piece from him in the space of a week or so. This is an incredible work, which I am guessing spells HIRE, although I don’t quite know how it can, bevause of its bilateral symmetry. If I look at it hard, I can convince myself I can read HIRE, but I can also read AVA, so it could probably be anything.

I have always liked Hire’s work, but I can never really understand why it gets painted over so quickly most of the time. Maybe it is the walls he chooses to paint that limits the lifespan of his work, or maybe there is a respect thing going on. I don’t know, but he certainly gets my respect and lots of 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.
