3992. M32 Cycle path (145)

I think that this is the last piece to be posted from a recent and most welcome spate of excellent work by Flava136 in Bristol. Having said that, maybe his trips will continue to be more frequent, and he seems to clicked with quite a few members of the LRS crew in the city.

As with the last piece I posted, Flava136 has produced some cryptic writing into this monster piece. I guess it says FLAVA or part of it, where the F is obvious, but thereafter I am clutching at straws a little – perhaps there is an L just above the tongue. Anyhow, this is yet another outstanding, sharp piece from Flava136.

3986. Purdown HAA Battery (35)

In the background of this photograph, you can see the iconic telecoms tower that anyone who leaves Bristol along the M32 will be familiar with. And, in this hallowed spot, Smut has given us another beautifully crafted piece of graffiti writing in his very distinctive style.

These pieces by Smut are so easy to look at and enjoy. The simple curves are superbly clean, and he has really treated us with a beautiful wavy line intersecting the word horizontally and some great colour fades along the way. The little pink dots round the piece off nicely. I have to say I am loving Smut’s work and hope to see a whole load more.

Thursday doors – 7 October 2021

Doors 163 – Truro, Cornwall, part 2.

Really pressed for time this week, so just a few more doors from our trip to Cornwall back in August when the weather was not dissimilar to the weather today. What has happened to our climate? (Answers on a postcard).

Onwards with those doors:

I told you it was a quick one this week. Have a wonderful week until next time.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors, and you really ought to take a look at the No Facilities blog by Dan Anton who has taken over the hosting of Thursday Doors  from Norm 2.0 blog. Links to more doorscursions can be found in the comments section of Dan Anton’s Thursday Doors post.

3927. Cumberland Basin

Another debut on Natural Adventures – crumbs, there have been so many of those this year, it is no wonder that I am having difficulty with keeping up. This is a rather charming piece by The Mole, who come to Bristol for Eman’s birthday paint jam at the end of July.

Naturally enough, The Mole likes to paint moles, and this one is sporting a rather fetching collection of pink peace symbols. The signature says Inca, and to give the artist his full name it is ‘Inca the Mole’. I like these kinds of megatag pieces, where an artist settles on a theme and then replicates it with variations. Lovely to see, and definitely not the last I will be posting from this west of England artist.
