Hire, Dean Lane, Bristol, March 2022

4349. Dean Lane skate park (477)

I have always and will always love the work of Hire. Hire is one of a large contingent of Polish artists in Bristol, each one bringing something rather special to our city, and becoming part of its rich cultural heritage.

This is a beautiful piece of writing set on a deep rich red background, giving it something of a sumptuous feel. I have to confess that I am not quite sure what the repeating pattern of letters says, I am used to picking out the letters HIRE or BF, but this is a bit of a mystery. As an exercise in repetition is is a stunner, and you might have a bit of fun playing ‘spot the difference’ between the three sections. Fine work from Hire.

  1. I saw him finishing this piece off and had a chat with him
    I told him I could normally read his letters no problems but this piece had me stumped which I think made him happy as that was I believe the point . . .

    If I remember correctly it was BFS and looking at it again I can just about see that with each letter painted on an angle and sloping backwards . . .
