This is an interesting dystopian character piece, painted during a paint jam a few weeks back, that definitely brightened up this rather dismal little corner of St Agnes. The character is by Acesartworld, who is an artist bubbling away just beneath the surface and occasionally popping up to create something quite unusual before disappearing again into the ether.

As a whole, the piece stands up well to scrutiny, although it has a slightly naive feel to it. At a guess, I would say that Acesartworld is self-taught, and producing some fine work, but some of the proportions and perspectives are slightly off. I feel like I am being over-critical, because as a piece it stands out. I think what I am saying is I would like to see a lot more from Acesartworld and observe any developments and improvements.

There are some artists who slip under the radar, often because their work is unsigned, or they just don’t paint often enough to get noticed properly. Acesartworld falls a little bit into this category, and although I have two or three of his pieces in my archive, I have never posted any of his work… until now.

Messages of peace are relatively common in street art work, and completely opposite to the kind of reputation some would have you believe about graffiti/street artists. This is a rather unusual piece, unlike much I have seen before, and not exactly typical of Acesartworld’s normal usual work. I must confess though to being a little confused about this piece, because the character is holding a gun, which doesn’t really reflect the message. No matter, it is a fresh piece from an artist I hope we will be seeing more of.
