2314. Dean Lane skate park (229)

Only a couple of weeks ago I posted a piece by this artist, Bandito, from Upfest 2018 and stated that I didn’t know anything about him, well the same applies today. In that post I referenced a recent piece by him, and this is it.

I am a big fan of tidy, clean and well-executed writing, and this one ticks all my boxes. His three-colour layering works very nicely, and the accent touches such as the stars and the yellow dusting around the outside of the piece are nicely done. I think I’ll need to keep my eyes peeled to see if I can find more from Bandito.

This is an interesting political piece by Bandito an artist I don’t know anything about but who has recently painted a piece in Bristol that I will have to dig out and post soon.

The work is a highly unusual one which slams home a message that wars should not be fought over oil. The flags of the USA, UK, Turkey, Israel, France and Iran, would indicate that the tensions lie here. Thought provoking.
