Dog Bless the Band, Cumberland Basin, Bristol, April 2021

3687. Cumberland Basin

Here we have another fine piece from Dog Bless the Band in muted shades spelling out MOTEL. It has been written in a style that bucks the trend of the more traditional New York wildstyle writing and has a much freer and somewhat anarchic feel to it.

Obviously it is the artist’s name that initially creates interest, but that is a bit of a side-show really. I love the subtle earthy tones of his work and ill discipline of his letter forms. The whole thing rather resembles the skin of a large mammal, like an elephant. Great work from an artist I know precious little about.
