The artist I miss the most when he hasn’t hit a wall for a while is Kid Crayon. There is something about his work and that it was seeing his wheatpastes in 2015 that drew me into appreciating street art in the first place that has created a special place in my heart for KC’s work.
This is a typically wonderful piece from a recent paint jam at the M32 roundabout. The big bold letters are interrupted with a pyramid and an all-seeing-eye for an A. This in itself is terrific, but the character’s face and hand emerging or sinking into flat calm water is pure magic.
The party hat, a signature element of KC’s recent works, is silly and fun, setting the whole thing off perfectly. Kid Crayon’s work is nearly always fun and engaging, bringing a smile to faces.
