2946. St Werburghs tunnel (168)

I managed to get out yesterday and found a few new pieces around the place, and it would seem that with some social distancing rules being relaxed artists are beginning to slowly return to walls. In the meantime, I still have a few archive pieces lined up for publication, including this fine collaboration fron Dasco and Wiflywin.

On the left is a nice piece of writing from Dasco. Confident and assured the fills are great and the stripy barcode effect on the 3D lettering has worked well in this instance, which is not always an easy thing to do. Set on an orange brick wall, the piece segues nicely into the wiflywin piece to the right.

Wiflywin continues the writing using a similar colour palette and the barcoded 3D letter shading, but perhaps with just a little less confidence. I am not quite sure what the letters spell out, and I will have to get to know more about the artist.

On the right is a smashed up police car and I am uncertain whether one or the other or both artists painted it. Perhaps there was another artist involved, I am not sure, but I rather like it, and it works really well as a ‘character’ bookend to the graffiti writing. I’m not sure why I never posted this in November last year when I first photographed it.

UPDATE – On 30 May I met Wiflywin for the first time and asked him about this, he told me that he painted the police car… problem solved.

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.

  1. HI Scooj,
    Been awhile. I had a bit of a blogging break to work on my WWI research. However, I’ve got back into it during lock down and have relaxed a bit too much perhaps on the research. However, I’ve wanted to explore this Covid 19 and explore and photograph our own experiences while keeping an ear out for experiences around the world. My favourite piece of street art was Gollum clutching his roll of toilet paper in Berlin’s Mauer Patrk. Definitely worth Googling. He’s saying the German equivalent of “My precious”.
    I went through a very relaxing bush walk two days ago which I’m yet to write up on the blog. Might get onto this tonight. A guy who likes hiking but is in lock down has started reading my blog so I tried to really absorb the walk so I could share it with him down to the sound of rocks and leaves crunching under foot and the sound of crashing waves in the distance. It was great.
    Best wishes
    Rowena

    1. Thanks for dropping by again. I have been looking at some, but not all of your recent posts, and enjoyed them. I have so little time at the moment. Working full time at home as is my wife with two teenagers in lockdown means a whole load of extra cooking, tidying etc etc. Much of my work is coronavirus related so it is hard to get away from it.
