1703. Moon Street (53)

This is a really interesting piece by Laic217 in Moon Street for two reasons. Firstly, it is unfinished, which is quite unusual in itself and secondly it seems like it might have been a practise wall for a piece he sprayed in Dean Lane skate park a few days later (see next post).

I rather hope that the character isn’t anyone he knows, because it isn’t particularly flattering. The mouth is unfinished and in fact the first time I looked at it I thought it was graffitied by someone else and the spray can is also unfinished. I do find it a bit of a puzzle that it is incomplete, because he appears to have put in a lot of effort before giving up. Perhaps he was disturbed. Anyhow, incomplete or not, I love this piece and the idea behind it. more classy work from Laic217.

This is a recent ‘quick one’ from Kid Crayon…utterly fantastic. It is also just a quick one from me too.

An old collaboration, the remnants of which can still be seen in Moon Street. The writing on the left obviously belongs to Ryder and the rather scary voodoo-like character is by the elusive 2Keen, both of RAW.

I have always been rather fond of this wall and can’t think why I haven’t posted it before. Ryder’s writing meets the high expectations one expects from his work, and the 2Keen piece is really rather special. His work is quite unlike anyone else’s and has a soft quality to it, almost blurry. A specialist in character teeth. Great at last to publish this one.

Splat! The more I see of Nevla’s work, the more I want to see. He is emerging as one of my favourite local artists and is becoming bolder with his pieces and his locations. Usually working in only two or three colours he creates these characters and sometimes introduces little philosophical comments to add depth to his work.

I particularly like the writing (ALVEN – NEVLA – get it?), where he has given a double line accent in the shadow of his letters which really lifts them off the wall. Beautifully done. He has also used a vanishing point for his 3D work, similar to the way Elvs does. This is a wholly satisfying piece by Nevla…upwards and onwards.

So here he is again, same spot different rabbit. Not long ago I posted a lovely orange bunny by Nevergiveup in this exact gateway. He is such a busy artist that when he runs out of walls, he simply goes over one he has done before, buffing over his own work.

I have said it before on this blog that I love these creatures that he populates the city with, and at risk of becoming a bit repetative, I will continue to post them… because I can.

Standing cheek to cheek with one of Laic’s acid house skeletons in Moon Street is this little character by an artist that I don’t know but who I am calling BTW until I know any better. I recently posted another of their pieces in The Bearpit that featured this same half-mutilated character.

It is a funny thing, but I didn’t notice the bone when I first photographed these pieces, probably because the upper half of the character has enough going on to distract the eye. There is something about the work of BTW that reminds me of a kind of Charlie Brown meets Southpark thing going. Of course that might only be me. Nice little piece.

I realise that some of you might think that I am overdoing it a bit with the Oner thing – this is my fifth post from this writer since mid-May – but I think that both his artistry and productivity deserve it.

At first glance the piece may look a bit messy, but there is lots that is good about it. His lines are clean and he has cut in the edges of his letters really skillfully so that each is distinct from the next. His shading regime has been reversed on the ‘e’ with the dark pink at the top and the light pink underneath. He has added in some nice drip decoration and if you look closely you can see some subtle bubbles on his dark pink. I think I could learn a lot from this writer.
