2173. M32 roundabout J3 (141)

There is no question about it, Rezwonk and Decay enjoy working together, and this collaboration really brings out the best in both. I took this picture while killing two birds with one stone…walking the dog and grabbing some pictures at the same time.

I think that this is one of my favourite pieces of writing from Rezwonk so far (spelling REZER) – some lovely letter shapes and nice clean lines. The colour selection for the collaboration as a whole is inspired and works really well on a sunny day.

I have said it before, but I am really enjoying Decay’s current writing period, each piece I see just seems to get better and better.The curves on the letters have a wonderful 3D feel to them and the cheeky Chuck grins on. A great collaboration that has managed to remain for a while in this high-turnover spot.

2122. The Nova Scotia

Anyone who can tell me what is going on here (other than the artist himself) deserves a medal, because it is wild and complex. Tom Miller has an exquisite touch and fertile imagination, a potent combination for creating vibrant and sometimes provocative street art.

Tom Miller left this piece unfinished for quite some time with a little note in the bottom right hand corner saying ‘work in progress’, but I have to say that the only difference I can make out between the unfinished and finished version is his signature.

The piece is in two very distinct and contrasting halves. On the left are several faces looking a bit like masks and typically distorted in a surreal way that Tom Miller does so well.

On the right hand side are two large intertwined and rather frightening dog heads and just above them a series of smaller ones. There is real threat and menace here which seems to be at odds with the unsuspecting mask faces to the left. A truly dream-like or even nightmarish piece from Tom Miller, executed with enormous skill.

2092. Brunel Way Bridge (13)

What a fabulous piece under Brunel Way by the distinctive Sepr. I love his work, which is so easy on the eye and has a strong retro cartoon feel to it. Part of an ASK paint jam, this piece features a dog in a smart suit performing with a little human glove puppet.

Sepr’s work pretty much always raises a smile and is always of such high quality. It is easy to see his tattoo artist roots in his clean lines and original designs. Truly one of Bristol’s very best artists and he keeps on turning out outstanding work.
