3412. Brunel Way bridge (84)

When I first saw this piece I thought it might have been by Mudra, mainly because of the bright colours and capped character, but I couldn’t find his recognisable signature anywhere, so I had to think again. It is in fact by Dit Oner, whose range of styles is to be admired.

This is a writing-character piece with the character being incorporated as one of the letters. The letters are beautifully designed and filled and the little white highlights help with the 3D effect. The character too is very nicely done and integrated into the writing. I have my doubts however about the yellow background. it simply doesn’t work for me, just a bit yucky and insipid. perhaps a darker colour might have worked better. Nonetheless a fine piece of writing from the Spaniard.

3315. River Avon (8)

When I went for a walk along the Riverside a week or two back it felt like Christmas had come early.  When you don’t visit a graffiti spot for a while, even one with a low turnover, there are always dozens of new pieces to admire.

This is a splendid piece of writing from Spanish artist Dit Oner that appears to stand proud from the wall thanks to some clever 3D shadows giving it depth and subtle light shading along the bottom of the letters. The letter style is bold and regular letters like these are made a little easier on brick walls when you can follow the lines of the brickwork to get your proportions and spaces. This one simply doesn’t want to be ignored.

3004. M32 roundabout J3 (220)

There have been an awful lot of artists making their debuts on Natural Adventures over the past few weeks, which speaks volumes about just how many street/graffiti artists there are out there at the moment. This is a lovely piece of graffiti writing from Dit Oner, and was painted as part of the Poland v Spain paint jam at the end of May.

The piece was painted next to Spanish compatriot Wiflywin  and adopted a similar colour scheme. I think, but cannot be certain that the writing says Dit On, but this is a real problem with reading graffiti writing, if you have something i your head, you can nearly always find it in the writing even it it isn’t there. Does that make sense? I think it is called suggestion. The piece is accomplished and very nicely done and I look forward to more from the artist.
