I haven’t posted many pieces by Evey, mainly because I haven’t actually seen all that many. She tends to paint with other Resting Bitch Face (RBF) crew members, including Pekoe and Bnie, which was the case on this wall.
What I particularly like about Evey’s work is its simplicity and femininity (without being girly, if that makes sense). Her letters are nice and organic, but it is her fills, which are so often full of happiness, that show off her creativity. Although her work is still developing, there is something about it that I find incredibly attractive.
Benjimagnetic is on fire at the moment, and although I haven’t’ posted many of his recent pieces, they are in the pipeline and I hope to share them all eventually. This one is in Dean Lane skate park on a wall that has seen some wonderful low-key pieces in the past. It is not one of the big ‘statement’ walls but tends to play host to some rather more modest pieces.
I will always own up to having Benjimagnetic dyslexia. I really struggle to make out his letters. However, I suspect Paul H might be able to help, but I think I can see an R an M? And an A? – who knows. His unique style is so recognisable and his ‘ghost’ letters brilliantly disguised. A fine piece of wildstyle writing.
Now, I rather like this piece by an artist I know nothing about and have drawn a complete blank on using the Interweb. I think the artist goes under the moniker ‘Dtok’ but it could be any number of variants. I will try to find out more.
It appears on the famous curved wall in Dean Lane skate park and is a nicely done piece of writing and character accompaniment. I have seen this character, Marvin the Martian, before on Hill Street painted by Deamze. Although Deamze has left us for Hobart, his Marvin piece is still there for all to see. When you compare the two works, you can see that Dtok is on a journey and that practice will pay dividends in the long run. I like this piece a lot but it didn’t last very long unfortunately.
