Sometimes it is possible to be completely ‘graffiti blind’, and when I was admiring this piece, but trying to work out the artist, DJ Perks arrived to photograph some other pieces on this wall. This piece was obviously classy, but I couldn’t work out who it was by, DJ Perks instantly said it was by Kosc. Of course it was. I just didn’t see it at first. My credibility was shot down in flames, but it happens sometimes. Not seeing the wood for the trees.
At least I had recognised that it was a classy piece, which it most certainly is. Kosc has written under another name in the past, and there are some giveaway clues that this was his work, in the ‘riveting’ used in some of the letters to ‘hold them together’. Great colour transitions and letter shapes. Pure class.
