Now that I have recently broken the ice with Ugar I feel I can post another of his works, which pre-dates his collaboration with Kid Crayon. This is a large piece which he sprayed alongside NEVERGIVEUP back in October.

It is a piece of two sections. On the left is his name UGAR bookended with a cat? and a dog and on the right a little scene being sprayed by the dog. I have noticed that Ugar likes to fill his lettering with a marbled effect, which works well and is unusual and organic.

The scene in green shades on the right is mysterious and dreamy and quite unlike his writing to the left of it. The green skulls add a slightly dark tone to this lighthearted piece, but they are contiguous with the other green clouds surrounding the whole piece.

Finally, Ugar has thrown in a whole bunch of fish bones filling the empty spaces…I’m not sure what that is all about.  There is a story in this piece somewhere. On the far right he has sprayed what looks like ‘I love cats’, but it might be something else. I am guessing he is being mischievous.

A recent piece from Mr Draws at Dean Lane skate park. I am glad that he is out there spraying again because his work always brings a smile to my face. He plays with simple ideas and and works them up in a unique style. There is nobody quite like Mr Draws.

I still don’t think he is spraying as much as he was earlier on in the year, and it seems like ages since I last bumped into him…I think it was at Upfest. It will be interesting to see if the cold weather will slow down the turnover of street art in Bristol…a part of me hopes so as my backlog of pictures is huge.

A wonderful recent piece on the long wall at Dean Lane by three of Bristol’s very best street/graffiti artists, 3Dom, Soker and Cheo from the ASK stable. I think that this might have been another Halloween collaboration – they have been very popular this year.

First off, on the left is a curious surreal house/shed/kennel with something swirly going on in the middle. 3Dom always has this dream like imagination that presents the familiar combined with the bizarre. The dripping house and shadow underneath are very nice touches to this piece. Great to see 3Dom being more visible on the streets again after a gap of several months.

I suspect that regular readers will be very familiar by now with the writing of Soker (text says SOKEM) or at least if you are not, where have you been? His writing is always of a high quality and I have rarely been disappointed.

Finally, rounding off the collaboration is a wonderful homage to ‘Freddy Krueger’ by Cheo, complete with razor fingers, stripy t-shirt and a pumpkin face. This is a fun piece that really stands out…it is a pity that there is a bit of glare on the photograph. Most annoying.

All in all this was a nice halloween surprise for me in this spot which I regularly visit. Great work from the boys.

There are some unusual colour selections in this nice collaborative pairing of Soge and Hire down at Deaners.The deep blue and maroon backdrop certainly lift the wildstyle writing of Soge, but Hire’s rabbit on the right is a little disguised.

I have said it before on this blog that Soge has an incredibly elaborate Gothic style of wildstyle writing which is quite unusual. I have absolutely no idea what the writing says in this piece, it might be ‘SOGEJEDEN’ which is his Instagram tag. I don’t know.

Always I have to like Hire’s rabbits wherever they appear – which is usually Dean Lane these days. Cheeky and mischievous.

A pairing that I have seen a number of times over the last couple of years is that of Laic217 and Cort. An interesting aspect of this is that while I have seen numerous solo Laic217 pieces, I can’t recall ever seeing solo Cort work, but maybe I’m just not seeing them.

This is the first piece to cover over the amazing work of Apset and Ionas from Upfest in July this year. To be honest, I am amazed it has taken so long, but finally the piece had been dogged and then covered over by this new collaboration. We see in this piece the familiar skeleton work of Laic217, this time in a monochrome red with purple accent.

The Cort writing is great to look at and plays with a few styles and techniques. All in all this is a nice collaboration, but one which I expect to be far shorted lived than it’s predecessor.

Thelochnessmonster specialises in these large rectangular line drawing pieces. In this case it s a white line on a blue background. There are several of the motifs that Thelochnessmonster uses in this piece, such as the yin yang icon, peace symbol and a crystal.

As is often the case with this artist, there is a story going on in this picture. It would be great to get into his head a little mor and start to unpick some of his work. Another nice piece from this artist with a quite unique atyle and approach to street art.

Although Laic217 seems to be slightly less busy on the streets than he was say, six months ago, he is still producing regular pieces, which is great for me as it is no secret that I love his work.

This piece contains the familiar format of a skeleton in a tracksuit sprayiong out the letters LAIC. The two components of the piece blend realy well and I love the color selections across the whole piece.

He has sprayed this in a particularly narrow passage which explains why there aren’t any decent front on pictures of this piece. As always, a real pleasure to share his work with you.
