Unsigned pieces are always tricky because it is quite easy to attribute them to the wrong artist and end up with egg on your face. I am, however, pretty certain that this ‘Brat’ piece is by Bnie, and I say this, because the style of letters is consistent with hers and she has written brat at least once before, some time ago.

The piece was written as part of a wonderful paint jam, that included outstanding works from Sepr and Sled One. What can I say about this writing? Great letters, great colours, nicely worked fades, effective white highlights and a tight border. What more is there to like from classy writing?

This is a cheeky little number from Bnie on the M32 roundabout. Such is the distinctiveness of her style that she doesn’t have to write Bnie for us to know that it is hers. Brat will do.

I don’t recall properly meeting Bnie, although I think I might have watched her paint once before. Her colours are often beautifully matched and her 3D shadows filled with patterns and designs. That gallery is getting ever closer.
