I took these pictures a little while back, and the beautiful collaboration featured is by DFC1848 and Peanutsdeli, painted as part of the DJ Perks 50th birthday paint jam. I am very familiar with DFC1848’s work, but this is the first time I have seen anything by Peanutsdeli, but on this evidence I’d love to see more.
The central characters are a familiar sight on Natural Adventures and DFC1848 has switched things up a bit by positioning the second character upside down and separating the two with a yellow “f”. Stepping back, you can see the whole thing spells out DFC. Nice tidy work.
The centrepiece is bookended by two remarkable characters by Peanutsdeli. These mischievous little folk are great fun and beautifully painted. They represent that clever crossover from illustration to street art. The characters would not look out of place in a children’s story book.
I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for more from Peanutsdeli, but I don’t think he paints much in Bristol, and I am guessing he is probably from the Cheltenham/Gloucester/Stroud area. Lovely work and a fine collaboration.
