Sometimes you’ve just got to go big and bold, and they don’t come much bigger and bolder than this fine piece of writing from Soker. This is a wall that doesn’t seem to change all that often, and is usually occupied by an ASK artist.
There is a lot to like about this piece which looks so graceful, clean and simple, but it takes a lot of skill and experience to pull off writing like this. The letter font is easy on the eye, and the green and white highlights help to give a 3D appearance, and the whole thing is set off on a nice background of cool colours and shapes. It is the pink touches that add just a little bit of class. A fine work.
There is something about Cheo’s work that oozes class. I think it stems from his great compositions and characters, but most of all his incredibly clean lines. The whole thing looks like it has been painted with fat felt tips rather than spray cans.
I love the smoking cat character with his gold chain in the centre of the piece, and I’m not too sure what the white creature on the left is, but he is clearly animated about something.
I struggle to read Cheo’s writing, mainly because he doesn’t simply write ‘CHEO’ which would of course make things much easier. Crazy that I’ve only just posted this one.
Painted at the same time as the Deamze piece in my previous post, this is a rather more colourful offering from Soker, which was almost certainly sprayed at the same time. This vibrant piece seems to have something that reminds me of Captain America…is it the stars?
I like Soker’s work a great deal and together with his ASK crew members he really brightens up Bristol’s streets and walls. Another old piece surviving in mint condition.
This is a rather old piece from Deamze, but I was down there very recently, and it is still looking in good nick. I have to say though that this is not my favourite piece by this artist. I feel the colours are all wrong for this location. It feels to me a little drab and lacking in vibrancy.
It happened from time to time. I can’t ‘love’ every piece I see. Technically this is a great piece…it just doesn’t do it for me. It is utterly untagged and respected though which shows the high esteem in which Deamze is held.
