3685. Dean Lane skate park (413)

The phrases ‘it’s the early bird that catches the worm‘ or ‘you snooze, you lose‘ both come to mind in respect of this wonderful new piece from Pekoe. I had seen the piece posted on Instagram and said to myself that I would head on down to Dean Lane the next day to photograph it. How was I to know that a whole ton of scaffolding would appear overnight to obscure the portrait? D’oh!

I think I have just about managed to get away with a reasonable capture of this fine ‘third eye’ piece from Pekoe. There are definitely some new techniques coming to the fore in her work at the moment, most notably the dotted outline cheeks, chin and nose. Once again the use of bold colours guarantees that this piece stands out from the crowd.

      1. I have heard that the space currently being used by The Sanctuary Bristol is going to be turned into flats which might be awful for everyone concerned, including the property developers, builders, artists, writers, skaters and whoever might buy the finished product.
        I am hoping I have heard wrong . . . .

  1. Property developers are some of the most ruthless people found anywhere
    If they sniff a profit they’re all over it
    They usually have friends in high places
    I am left wondering what’s going to happen to the skatepark
