It has been a pure joy to see the recent collaborative walls from Mommynature and Nugmoose and to see how their contrasting styles sit comfortably side by side. As seems typical when artists paint together, Mommynature is usually on the left and Nugmoose on the right.
The beautiful pigeon in front of a yellow sun is by Mommynature and clearly demonstrates her growing confidence with painting walls and owning her space. The stencil-effect of the piece is cleverly executed, too. To the right, Nugmoose has painted another avant-garde piece, the explanation of which is deeply rooted in his own imagination. There is some alien writing and alien forms, all presented in a rather trippy fashion. I am loving these two and look forward to their next creative collaboration.
It would appear that Mommynature and Nugmoose are a cosy collaborating pair, who, together, are turning out some fabulous work at the moment. This is one of several recent collaborations that have appeared in some of the popular graffiti spots in Bristol.
I have noticed that, in common with other collaborative partnerships, when these two paint together, Mommynature (formerly known on Natural Adventures as Frog), tends to paint on the left and Nugmoose on the right. Mommynature returns to he frog character, who is sitting on a log, looking a little ‘tired and emotional’ after a party, as a snail, complete with cigarette, slowly passes by. A lovely story piece from Mommynature.
To the right, is some alien writing from Nugmoose, that we have come to know and love, and parts of the writing are accompanied by alien objects, living or otherwise. The great thing about painting alien life is that it gives you great latitude to imagine, without being constrained by convention. I am loving the collaborations from these two, and look forward to seeing what they can do together this year.
What a whole ton of fun in this collaboration from Frog and Nugmoose. At this point, I feel I need to update my blog, because I gave Frog her name a little while back, on account of her preference for painting frogs. It turns out that her Instagram name is Mommynature, and so that is what I shall be calling her from now on. (I might need to go back into my archive and change the name in previous posts).
To the left, Mommynature has painted a fabulous banana, a fruit you don’t see enough of in street art (IMO). The banana is beautifully painted with some nice bubbles drifting about too. To the right is a curious piece of alien writing (perfectly executed) with a box of stuff – alien matter?, which is plugged into letters. The collaboration is an enjoyable and imaginative creation from these painting partners.
