I love this fun piece from DFC1848 for a great many reasons. Primarily, we are witnessing the development of an artist from the early stages. DFC1848 is a street art hunter (a term I dislike) like me, who about two years ago turned his hand to spraying walls with his ‘stock’ character piece, following some work on stickers. He has been practicing and repeating his favoured character on a reasonably regular basis since then but the step change has occurred during lock down, where he was painting a new piece in his garden pretty much every day, with some rather spectacular results.

Now since the lock down restrictions have eased DFC1848 has painted this in Dean Lane, with a confidence of an accomplished artist. It is great to see. I really look forward to seeing some of the characters he practiced in his garden making it onto the streets of Bristol this summer.

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.
