3771. L Dub (29)

If you want to see graffiti writing or character work from DJ Perks, and lots of it, then look no further than L Dub. It would seem that about 25% or so of all the pieces down there are by him, and he is constantly pushing himself and evolving his work.

This is without doubt the largest piece I have seen by DJ Perks and features the Incredible Hulk (I assume) peering through a colourful brick wall. This is quite an undertaking, simply from an access and size point of view, but also artistically stretching. The only observation I have (call my picky) is that the bricks could have had a 3D element to them to give the whole piece a but more depth. All in all, so good to see such a large, creative piece from DJ Perks.

Doors 127 – Bristol doors with interesting surrounds

Sometimes it is not so much the door that is interesting but the brickwork, the awnings, the steps, or the whole design around an entrance that makes it stand out. This week’s selection of doors all have rather plain doors, but what surrounds them is worth a good look. Here we go:

That’s yer lot for another rather turbulent and unsettling week… US Election and England lockdown.

Be safe and kind wherever you are and have a great week.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors and you really ought to take a look at the Norm 2.0 blog – the originator of Thursday Doors where there are links to yet more doors in the comments section at the end.
