Dibz and Shade One, Dean Lane, Bristol, March 2020

2856. Dean Lane skate park (301)

This is what can happen when two outstanding writers combine their efforts. This supreme collaboration is by Dibz and Shade One, painted in Dean Lane on the same day that Rusk, Soker, Inkie and Hemper painted on the other long wall back in March. A red letter day indeed. The whole collaboration is set on a clean blue background with a magnificent silhouetted cityscape running horizontally through the piece.

On the left is an absolutely faultless piece from Dibz as we have become accustomed to expect. The fills are really subtle, dradig from a lighter blue at the top to a slightly darker one at the bottom, and the letters have just the right amount of accents in red to set the piece off nicely. This is what great graffiti writinng looks like.

On the right we have some equally high-class writing from Shade One, an artist I know relatively little about. In this piece I particularly like the tiny ‘cracks’ in red through the letters and the stellar accents on the first and last letters. Magnificent. I am not too sure what the letters say, nor their significance, it looks like JOBE or TOBE. The only other post I have made from this artist was an Upfest piece from 2018.

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.
