4304. M32 roundabout J3 (392)

I’m trying to be as contemporary as I possibly can be, but am still a day late – Happy St Patrick’s Day for yesterday. I accelerated this piece through my pipeline, so that I could publish it today, having photographed it only yesterday afternoon. This cheerful and very green piece is, of course, by the brilliant graffiti writer Dibz.

The star of the show is obviously the character, who takes centre stage, and distracts a little from the squeaky clean lines and seamless fill fades of the letters DIBZ. One of the things I like most about Dibz’ pieces is that they simply ooze confidence and competence, this is someone at the top of his game.

The character might be accused of being a little bit stereotypical, but it is a caricature the likes of which will be replicated across the world in places under the sphere of Irish influence. The pointy ears would suggest that this is a leprechaun enjoying a pint of grog. The FUA belt is a rather nice little touch. Superb work from Dibz.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
