In mid-March, I first posted a piece by Raid, saying that there was more to come. Today is the third piece from the artist to appear on Natural Adventures and there will be plenty more this year I’m sure.
Raid is a graffiti writer who likes to keep a fixed general shape and design of his letters, but introduces the magic with fills, shadows, borders and backgrounds. One of the very clever techniques he uses, and which I haven’t really seen from other artists, is to use two colours in the 3D drop shadow, in this instance black augmented with green ‘slabs’ or ovals, which adds texture and depth to the edges. The silver letters are nicely patterned with a blue and pink ridge line and some spots for good measure. I am interested to see where Raid takes us on his painting journey.
