Zake, Dean Lane, Bristol, February 2022

4233. Dean Lane skate park (459)

This is the first piece I am posting that I photographed after my return from a week away in France, and already my February 2022 folder is bursting at the seams from pieces painted over a seven or eight day period. Bristol has, more than ever in my experience, so many artists painting regularly that it is simply impossible to keep on top of them. There are also a great many new entrants popping up, probably drawn to Bristol because of its graffiti culture.

Of course Zake is hardly a new entrant to the Bristol street art scene, but I still consider him to be relatively recent, with his early pieces still decorating some of the pillars under the M32 motorway. This is a gorgeous double face piece, which is so unmistakably ‘Zake’ in design and execution. His work just goes from strength to strength with each new piece he paints. This was one of two recent collaborative walls painted with fellow Spaniard Varo.
