2446.M32 roundabout J3 (167)

Recently some rather uplifting and optimistic small pieces have been appearing on the M32 roundabout by an artist called Eden. This is yet another artist new to me and one I know very little about.

This rather subtle and understated piece is easily missed but once found is not easily forgotten. The bright colours give the viewer the sense that there is optimism for our planet, which is what I got out of it anyway. A simple design which is competently painted and which has given me pause for thought every time I have walked past. Nice one Eden.

I can’t think how many artists have graced the pages of Natural Adventures for the first time this year, but is must be well in excess of twenty and Dasco is just the latest in that roll of honour (if indeed it is an honour appearing in these pages, I don’t mean to be presumptuous or big headed). Although this is the first time I have featured Dasco’s work I know it won’t be the last.

The colour schemes and overall design are fantastic and the complexity and accuracy of the fills is really impressive. I am not certain, but I think that the mischievous rolling of a joint to the left of the writing is also by Dasco. The whole thing is the work of a very skilled and talented artist. At this moment I know nothing about Dasco so I guess I’ll have to start doing some homework. Great piece.

Photographed on a sunny afternoon, this is a beautifully thought out piece of writing by Cassette in the fine tradition of using a different style for each letter. Particularly pleasing is the way the artist has crafted the ‘SS’ in the form of a snail and the ‘TT’ as a couple of  palm leaves.

This is the second time I have seen work from Cassette in Bristol this summer, and both pieces were on this wall. The other was of a very nicely painted whale. I believe the artist is from the Southwest, but it is nice to see that he finds time to visit Bristol from time to time.

 

2443. M32 Spot (49)

Well, here is something a little different from Nightwayss down at the M32 Spot. One of the columns transporting us to a warm skateboarding scene, an appropriate piece for this spot which is a DIY wet-weather skate park.

These columns are such a difficult place to paint a meaningful story, but Nightwayss does it with great skill and assurance, and just for good measure he includes one of his monkeys (as if he wouldn’t). This is a refreshing and wonderful piece from this prolific Bristol artist.
