4157. Sparke Evans Park (25)

More from Mest, which is usually something to enjoy, and this is a great example of his versatile use of colours and fill shadings to switch up his letters a little bit. I have said it before, but I am not fond of the brown/orange combination, but I have to admit it works well in this piece, and although painted in the winter has an autumnal feel about it.

Sparke Evans Park is becoming more and more popular and I am definitely going to have to increase the frequency of my visits. The dog always likes walking down alongside the river, but it does take quite a long time to get down there, especially if there is heavy traffic. I have a whole ton more pieces to post from this particular visit back in November.

A few weeks ago Pl8o told me that he had a whole bunch of new designs ready to go, and since then I have figured that each new piece I have seen would have been part of this roll-out, including this beauty on the long wall at Greenbank.

If I am honest, I think that brown and orange are my least favourite street art colours, although if used to highlight or fill pieces they are not so bad. I suspect that this relates to a rather horrible pair of nylon pyjamas I had in the 1970s that were brown with an orange trim. Yuk.

I absolutely love the stylised letters that Pl8o has drawn up and the character is a very welcome addition, which I assume is by him too. All in all a very nice addition to his portfolio, just a pity about the colours (in my opinion).
