4162. Cattle Market Road (9)

The large tunnel that runs underneath the railway tracks of Bristol Temple Meads station is home to a whole ton of graffiti, but is not a place I visit very often. It was great to see, therefore, on my most recent visit this magnificent skull piece by Dabuten Tronko.

I have never met the artist, but would be really interested in doing so at some point, just to get a sense of what makes him tick. His pieces are always really interesting to look at and his technical ability top notch, marry those together and you get a creative beast staring at you from the wall. This grim reaper figure has a bit of a tattoo artist feel to it, although I don’t think Dabuten Tronko is a tattoo artist. A satisfying find.

There is a thing at this time of year in the street/graffiti art world and that is to do a Halloween piece. I haven’t seen too many this year, although I have just been out to walk the dog and photographed a whole bunch more. This one is by Biers, who I am pleased to report is writing Biers again having spent the last year or two writing OhYeah.

This piece is a classic writing/character combination with a rather friendly looking grim reaper popping up to the right hand side of the writing. Biers has been reasonably dormant this year, so it is great to see him getting out and about.
