Hurrah, it is that time of year again when Feek gets to work on the large ramp at Dean Lane skate park in preparation for the Dean Lane Hardcore (DLH) event. I don’t know if he takes it upon himself to decorate this ramp or whether he is invited to do it, but whatever the reason it is an annual August highlight at Dean Lane.
This year’s monster is painted in a dark blue colour, quite an unusual colour for street artists, and sports a fine row of sharp teeth and bloodshot eyes in yellow and pink… why not. Although the monster is quite fierce, it also has a warmth about it.
The observant among you will have noticed that the bloodshot eyes spell out Dean Lane Hardcore, so there is no mistaking that this was prepped for the event. I’m glad I got to see it in pretty much pristine condition, because the skaters scuff it up pretty quickly and after the event these pieces can look quite tired. More from Feek below:
