1713. Upfest 2018 (38)

The forecast for Upfest this year had been pretty dreadful, which was disappointing as the rain came in the middle of a heat wave and prolonged spell of dry weather. The impact on many artists was that they made hay while the sun shined and finished their pieces early on Saturday. The upshot to this is that there were several artists I would have liked to catch up with that were long gone by the time I found their work.

Decay has long been a favourite of mine, and it is great to see that in 2018 he has really started to grow his style while keeping the basic elements of his colour pallette and curvy lines. This is a 10 year celebration piece and has a nice little dedication to Emma and Steve, the masterminds behind Upfest in the top right. If I am not mistaken, there is a Bowie lyric in there too. This is a nice splash of colour and a lovely nod to the festival itself.
