4439. Dean Lane skate Park (492)

One of the best things about looking for and photographing street art is the surprises. Sometimes, everything can get a bit predictable, with the same artists spraying the same kinds of things in their usual spots, and then a piece like this appears shaking everything up.

Sepr and Sled One have collaborated before, and in this piece, a true collaboration has emerged with the two styles blending into the same subject. I am guessing the piece is called ‘dancing with the devil’ if one says what one sees.

The lady to the left is by Sepr, and the greyscale figure is full of movement and concentration, dancing with her much larger partner. The devil character is by Sled One and is delicately, touchingly, holding his partner. One can only guess at his intentions, but in this moment the dance appears to be both intense and tender. Incredible storytelling from the pair of artists. The devil’s shoes are a hoot. This is one of the best character pieces in Bristol so far this year.

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.

  1. Although I used to go swimming and roller skating at Bristol South Baths, I don’t think that the Dean Lane Skate park would be for me these days. That said, I reckon this one is a cracker.
