It can become confusing sometimes when you are on the hunt for a specific piece. When there are hundreds of images swirling around your head that you have seen on social media, it is easy to forget what pieces you have gone out to photograph, and this confusion very nearly led to me missing out on this magnificent piece by Laic217. I had walked past it, thinking that I had photographed it before, and it was only on my return journey that I realised it was new but not the new piece I was looking for… that was somewhere completely different.
Laic217 has been creating some amazing pieces recently, and he is definitely on an upward trajectory. This skeletal figure, puffing away on a joint, is another fine example of the artist’s work, once again showcasing his craft in painting materials and fabrics that his characters wear. More good work. I was fortunate enough to bump into Paul H on this trip, and it is surprising how often that happens, but here, miles away from our usual haunts on the same day at the same time, was quite bonkers. We stopped and chatted for a while before I had to scarpa back to work.
