4494. Dean Lane skate park (499)

This is one of several Logoe pieces from a short visit to Bristol by the artist recently, and in my view probably the best. On the best wall (IMHO) at Dean Lane skate park, Logoe has taken time and care with this piece, and the proportions work well.

Following his regular style of slim, white script writing spelling out his name decorated with stripes and elyptical dots, Logoe has produced a beauty here. the colour combinations are excellent, and the whole piece really benefits from a buffed wall, without which it would probably look a bit untidy. I think I still have one or two pieces from this Bristol trip.

4467. Frome Side (13)

It would appear that Logoe has had another blitz in Bristol recently, hitting several walls over a very short period of time. These two pieces are from the Frome Side spot underneath the M32 between the two roundabouts. This is a place I don’t often visit, because it is too dangerous to go there with the dog, and I rarely photograph street art without him.

Both pieces follow Logoe’s modus operandi, which is to paint his thin script lettering on a colourful background and to decorate the whole thing with a horizontal array of oval spots of varying sizes. This is his thing and this is what he does. This red piece looks wonderful and is accompanied by the words: ‘Attitude legit cos I’m tearing up shit’ – which is a lyric from NWA’s Straight Outta Compton – something I’d have never found out without Google.

The second piece following the same formula although with chunkier writing and a duller mustard background is a tribute to the late Meatloaf, which is a rather nice gesture. The two pieces are about 20 yards apart, and I am guessing were painted in the same session. More to come from this latest whistle-stop tour by Logoe.

4261. M32 Cycle path (165)

One of the highlights of the winter, and forgive me if I have said this before, has to be the regular visits by Logoe to Bristol, during which he paints five or six pieces in as many days. This one was one of several I photographed in quick succession in and around the M32 area a few weeks back.

Logoe’s style typically takes the form of script writing spelling out Logoe, decorated with horizontal rows of colourful spots and often accompanied with some text. In this piece the text reads ‘Dance for me, Dance for me, Dance for me,… oh, oh, oh.”Probably lyrics from a song, but I don’t know which. Beautiful stuff from a great graffiti writer.

4242. M32 Spot (133)

The best thing about photographing and chronicling street art in Bristol are the surprises, and they don’t come much bigger than this fabulous three way collaboration from Logoe, Sepr and Haka. Three old hands (I hope they won’t mind me calling them that) on the Bristol scene combining their talents on one wall.

To the left of the triptych is a truly fabulous piece of script graffiti writing from Logoe, who has been mad for it this winter. There really has been no stopping him, despite the fact he doesn’t even live in Bristol and blitzes our walls in short bursts.

The middle section is a superb character piece from Sepr, featuring a beautifully dresses satan balancing a flaming earth on his finger. Why would such a thing be happening?… oh yeah, the planet is being run by imbeciles and climate change is going to change everything. Satan surely has a hand in all of this somewhere.

Haka, M32 Spot, Bristol, January 2022

The right-hand section is a cheerful piece by Haka, that clearly demonstrates his ability when he puts his mind to it. Often his pieces have a rough-edge, grounded feel to them, but not this one. Here he has pulled-off some stylish writing and excellent fills that do the job nicely and round off the whole collaboration. Great work from these three.

4237. Sparke Evans Park (31)

One of the highlights of doing what I do, posting about street art that is, has been the re-emergence of Logoe on his visits to Bristol this winter. When he comes, he doesn’t just do one piece, he does loads; I think I counted six or seven from his last trip. So productive is he, I think I’ll have easily enough for a gallery soon.

This beauty, in Sparke Evans Park, is a masterpiece in green, incorporating his wonderful script lettering and horizontal line of circle decorations. Such a distinctive style and aesthetically pleasing appearance adds to the wealth of outstanding graffiti writers who paint in Bristol. Look out for a whole bunch more to come.

4184. River Avon (25)

Ooh what a beauty from Logoe, in the last place I would expect to find a piece by him, and just how well does it work on this wall? I love absolutely everything about this piece, and was super-pleased when I found it, especially as I haven’t noticed on any social media (at the time of writing).

To the untrained eye, the piece might read something like ‘vogue’, but for anyone who knows his work, the script lettering and horizontal dusting of spots would give him away long before reading the Logoe letters. I think that this is one of my favourite pieces by the artist and a gem of a find. Still more to come (I think).

4160. M32 Spot (128)

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to see so many Logoe pieces go up over the past three months or so. I guess that we will have to enjoy them while they are here, because the nature of his work might keep him away from the streets for much of the spring and summer.

This is an utterly awesome piece of writing on the long wall under the M32, incidentally, one of my favourite walls in Bristol, even if it can be a bit tricky to photograph. Painted on a backdrop of earthy and subdued colours, the piece follows his tried and tested format of joined up script writing spelling out ‘Logoe’ liberally decorated with spots running horizontally through the lettering. All very nicely done and filling the space expertly. More to come from this purple patch from Logoe.

4146. M32 roundabout J3 (371)

As mentioned before in recent posts, Logoe has been hitting the streets of Bristol hard this winter, sometimes on his own and sometimes in partnership with either Silent Hobo or Haka. This piece on the M32 roundabout was with the latter.

Haka’s distinctive and rather unusual lettering style occupies the right hand side of the wall and is painted in chrome, with typically bright and colourful yellows and oranges as a backdrop. There is something joyful and mischievous about his letters, that I like a lot.

To the left is another fabulous script letter piece from Logoe, spelling out his name with real class and style. No philosophising or quotes to accompany this one, just a delicious array of spots, some drifting across from Haka’s writing beside. A comely collaborative effort.

4129. St Werburghs tunnel (269)

Logoe continues to hit Bristol walls hard, this time with his friend Silent Hobo, to create this lovely collaboration on the entrance to the tunnel in St Werburghs. Their content and styles are so very different, but there is a chemistry there that brings the whole thing together seamlessly.

The writing by Logoe is distinctive with its thin script-like letters and gorgeous fills, decorated with spots and stars along the length. The youth, so brilliantly portrayed by Silent Hobo, is wearing a blue hoodie and sporting big hair and glasses. I am not at all certain what the axe is all about though. So good to see these two combining again.

4104. New Stadium Road (36)

I met Logoe for the first time a couple of weeks ago at this spot while he was painting a collaboration with Silent Hobo, one of his old mates. Their collaboration, I don’t think even lasted a day, and I only have one WIP photograph of it, such is the ephemeral nature of street art in popular spots. Logoe comes across as a lovely bloke and was more than happy to talk about his work and his trips to Bristol.

Unlike his collaboration piece, this one has lasted well and I believe is still there, or at least it was last time I visited this spot. The delicate colours work really well on this script LOGOE entering. With many of his pieces Logoe likes to add a little quote or phrase and here he gives us:

“They say (she) dodged a bullet… but it put her in the ground”

This sounds like a lyric, but I am not too sure what from. Anyhow, it works well with this lovely piece. Logoe also told me that he had missed out a word. I am guessing it was the word ‘she’ that I inserted in brackets.
