I simply haven’t posted enough of Stiv’s work, but I guess the same could be said for a majority of Bristol artists. With publishing only two posts each day on Natural Adventures I am never going to be able to cover everything. At the end of each month I would guess that I only post about a third to a half of the pieces I record. Something for me to do in retirement perhaps?
I think that thhis tribute piece must be in some way connected to the tribute collaboration with Frank Riot at the other end of the tunnel, because both are dedicated to a friend who died two years ago and was connected to the music industry. The letters are utterly awesome and the movement and vibe dancing off the piece give off a sense of sound and dance. A fine piece with meaning.
An artist that I feel I don’t see nearly enough of is Logoe. I first encountered his work in April 2017 while he was collaborating with Silent Hobo, and it was on that occasion that I was told that Logoe was returning to painting on the streets after a long lay-off, and that he had been a bit of a legend in the past – Silent Hobo’s words.
This piece is typical of his thin hand-written style letters. The letters are beautifully picked out spelling Logoe, but it is the additional decorations that bring the writing to life. The dots through the middle and horizontal thin lines that at first I thought were drips add real interest. It is always really good to stumble across one of these.
I am seeing more and more work by Dasco, but I think I have only ever posted one piece by this artist before. I have quite a few in my archive, and I think I’ll have to dig them out and post them, because pretty much everything I have seen is really very good. I think that my lack of Dasco posts is basically down to knowing nothing at all about the artist.
This particular recent piece of graffiti writing from Dasco in Dean Lane is absolutely masterful. The more I look at and study it the better it seems to get. Using the tried and tested black, white and red colour combination (Decay would approve) Dasco has crafted a beautiful and stylish font, elaborate and fancy without being precious. I need to find out more about this great graffiti writer.
