1331. New Stadium Road (4)

I don’t visit this spot very often as it is slightly out of the way and I need to find time to get there, park up etc in my very busy family schedule. Often I find that going to the recycling centre (tip) is a good excuse for taking a bit of time out, but on this occasion my wife had to do some shopping locally and offered to drop me off…never one to pass up an opportunity I accepted the offer.

Lucky that I took a look, because I found this rather nice pairing of Whyasyit and Kleiner Shames who used to spray a lot together until KS moved to London a little over a year ago. Both artists have such unique styles which once you get your eye in are easy to identify.

I like it when two or more artists use common colours and background and do their thing. Kleiner shames always write FOIS, and for a long time I thought it was the artist’s name…early posts refer to him as Fois. His lines ans designs have what I would call an ’80s deco feel about them (I know what I mean by this, but you might not).

Whysayit seems to be forever busy on the streets writing YSAE with similar ‘handwriting’ but always with creative and imaginative backgrounds and fills. Two great writers who work well together.

Perfect day

A stroll all alone

talking to those departed;

no longer alone.

  • Roughly once a year I visit Bracklesham in West Sussex and spend a couple of hours finding peace, looking for fossil shark teeth and remembering departed loved ones. The perfect way to recharge my batteries. Ready for the long slog to Christmas now.
