You can expect a whole lot more of these wonderful monster pieces from Mote, because I have a lot in my archive, and he paints regularly enough to keep me busy. This is a great example of his work, and also typifies his preference for columns. Although the monster might seem a little naive, it is actually beautifully painted and Mote takes his time to keep his lines sharp and his fills really solid.
I take great inspiration from artists like Mote, Enn Kay and Maybe Paints who are all pretty new to painting the streets and have come on really quickly, presenting some outstanding work. If I get a moment, I hope to do my first public piece this summer, following their brave example, very possibly on one of the columns under the M32.
