2607. M32 Cycle path (42)

I would hope that regular readers of Natural Adventures would recognise this sinister pair as being the work of Laic217, an artist who has appeared on these pages with great regularity and whose work just seems to get better and better.

On the left we see a skeleton draped with themes and motifs that Laic217 has been using for some years now, such as a bucket hat with a rather animated smiley on the front, multiple sets of eyes behind the glasses, and a distorted, exaggerated mouth/jaw. This skeletal character, holding a spray can is being led to one side by… is it Satan himself?

The satanic character brings colour to the piece and a little menace too. He seems to be directing the hand of the skeleton, clutching a spray can, perhaps forcing him to paint the wall. Is this in some way autobiographical? or something else altogether? This is an interesting composition once more beautifully painted by Laic217. Another keeper for the gallery.

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.
