4113. M32 roundabout (366)

It is clear that Acer and Benjimagnetic enjoy painting together, and having met them both in the tunnel last week they seem to get along really well. This collaboration was painted about a month or so back, and shows the deeply contrasting styles of their work, and indeed is a great example of how varied graffiti writing can be.

On the left is a nice piece by Acer, which reads TOBY13, and is a lovely birthday tribute for his son Toby. Carefully designed and regimented, Acer’s work is measured out and masked using a meter-long thin plank. The final effect is dazzling, and it can take a while to get your eye in to be able to read his letters.

To the right is an outstanding piece from Benjimagnetic that is another great example of his newer style I talked about a few days ago. Less ephemeral and more solid than some of his more familiar work and so full of colour and energy. The letters are very cryptic, but if you know that he usually writes BEN then it becomes easier to see.

This is a really fabulous collaboration.
