3820. M32 Cycle path (135)

Laic217 – or old faithful as he should be called, has turned out yet another outstanding piece to add to his vast collection. Just to get a feel for his talent, it would be worth taking a quick look at this newly revised gallery to refresh your memory.

In this piece, we see Laic217 return to his trippy, psychedelic facial disruption theme, with doubling eyes vertically and mouth furnished with an additional row of teeth, not forgetting the duplication of smoking joints. I don’t think we have to look too far to understand where Laic217 gets his inspiration from.

The character looks a little worse for wear, his bloodshot eyes adding to the overall look, and the pink gunge dripping from his bucket hat rather neatly spells out Laic217 before settling on his shoulder. For Laic217 connoisseurs, this is a gem.

3744. M32 roundabout J3 (327)

This is just wonderful, a large organic piece from Petro and the second to appear on Natural Adventures. Petro is an artist that I have taken an instant liking to. His unusual, subdued colour selections and desire to fill as much space as possible with his writing really appeals to me.

In this piece, it is the 3D purple shading that catches the eye as it sucks everything from the right to the left. As well as spelling out PETRO, he also includes the letters TFWH, although I don’t know what these relate to – a crew possibly. Big, bold, psychedelic and modestly outrageous – I love it.
