2722. Brunel Way Bridge (27)

There is something very pleasing about this piece by Turoe One… it might be the simplicity of colours, the sharpness and crispness of the lines and fills or the form of the lettering – whatever it is, I know that I like it.

I think I have written about the arrow that appears on so much graffiti writing before, but I don’t recall coming to a conclusion. I am not sure if there is any significance to the arrow motif, or whether it is simply an aesthetically pleasing way to add interest to lettering. I know that as a kid I used to doodle block letters with arrows, but maybe it was influenced by ’70s graffiti – I simply don’t remember. Anyhow, I like a nice piiece with arrows, and Turoe One has delivered with this one.
