1694. M32 cycle path (18)

Although this piece by Deamze looks really simple, it is actually a really classy bit of writing. The block letters each cast a shadow over the letter to their right, giving the whole thing a 3D effect. Deamze has used only a few colours and shades to create this burner – I can count three greens and possibly four greys.

The spot is one that Deamze alone seems to inhabit. I suspect that out of respect, other artists always leave this spot for Deamze. It would be interesting to see what would happen if another artist painted here.

1653. New Stadium Road (6)

Another day, another Deamze piece…his work rate is really phenomenal and the quality of his designs and their execution is unparalleled. It is easy to become blazĂ© about his work, because his standard is so consistent, but if you take a good look at this piece, there is so much to admire.

The colour selection works well with yellow tones set on a blue background. There is a lot of intricacy to the interlocking letters and precision in the shapes. Yet another outstanding example of this incredible talent.

This spot is always impossible to photograph – I think the only solution is to come down at dusk and use a flash, and if I am honest I’m not sure I am fanatical enough to do that. The piece is, of course, by Deamze and shows off his angular puzzle-like wildstyle writing really well.

As is often the case, I am not at all sure who the character is, and think it might possibly be a figment of his fertile imagination. It feels strange, but of all the most productive Bristol artists painting at the moment, I still have yet to meet Deamze – our paths just haven’t crossed. I have a feeling he likes to keep himself to himself. Yet another consistently good piece.

1626. Devon Road (7)

Oh I just love it when I make new finds when I am actually looking for something completely different and stumble upon something like this. I was driving round Easton hunting down Andrew Burns Colwill’s new mural when I drove up Devon Road – a funny road that has a dog-leg layout, one part of which is a back street and the other a fairly busy main road.

This is of course by Deamze, and I just don’t know how it fell outside my radar, but I am glad I found it nonetheless. Even better is that I know who the character references are which can’t be said for a lot of the 80s and 90s cartoon characters that Deamze uses.

The character is the robot Bender from the TV series by Matt Groening (creator of the Simpsons – who have featured big time at Upfest 2018). It is all very good, and Deamze’s wildstyle writing is exceptional as always. I love the freshness of this piece.

1579. Norfolk Place (3)

Oh, will this gorgeous weather never end? It is causing havoc with my photographs!

No prizes for guessing who this glorious piece is by, it is of course Deamze, the master of wildstyle writing accompanied by a cartoon character.

The Character in this piece is a rather worse-for-wear looking Batman with the obligatory spray can. Even though the work is on a textured surface, the piece is crisp and clean.

Deamze uses several writing styles in his work, and this one incorporates his zig-zaggy shapes that make up the letters D E A M Z. A lovely fresh piece for the summer.

1515. M32 roundabout J3 (82)

This is what Deamze specialises in, a fantastically intricate piece of writing accompanied by a cartoon character. In this piece, which was painted at the recent ASK crew paint jam, Deamze makes full use of bold primary colours – something not often seen in my experience of graffiti/street art.

 

I think this is a really sharp piece, beautifully executed, as if we should expect anything less. I don’t really know who the character is, he looks familiar but I can’t place him. Google searches failed me on this occasion.

 

This is a bright piece which looks amazing on this section of wall and the pictures with tree cover add that little something special. Fine work.
