2507. St George skate park (8)

It is a great pity that I didn’t manage to photograph this piece by Slakarts before it got scuffed up (an occupational hazard for any paintings in a well-used skate park), because it is difficult to make out the true beauty of it. Although I have a few of his pieces in my archives, this is only the second of his pieces that I have written about. Probably about time to break some of his older pieces out.

His work often features a face in this style that rather resembles a mask. The subtle colours he has used here are probably more prone to skateboard damage than something that might have been a bit brighter but you can nonetheless get a sense of the rather solemn face. The drips are intentional. More to come from Slakarts soon.

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.
