Phour, Dean Lane, Bristol September 2020

3193. Dean Lane skate park (353)

Phour, an artist that I only encountered for the first time this summer, has been hitting the walls quite hard this year and there aren’t many spots around the city that haven’t had his letters displayed in all their glory.

This piece, behind the swimming pool railing at Dean Lane, shows what Phour is capable of. Some really nice crisp letters with a three-colour horizontal fill, the central red stripe with loads of little red spots around it. There are further purple decorations reading across to the top and bottom stripes. The whole thing set on a green splat background. I’m not entirely certain about that green with the other colours, it just doesn’t quite feel right. A top quality piece from Phour.

  1. Yes I agree about the green. I think it’s because it’s the same tone as the central red and blue – ie all medium. The green needs to be lighter or darker and then it should fit.
    It’s about the only thing I remember learning from art at school! eg Even red and orange go together if the tones are different enough. Light red = pink and dark orange = brown; dark red = maroon and pale orange = cream. 😀
