Yet another fine piece of script writing from Logoe, painted during something of a marathon by the artist on his most recent trip to the city. There is little more that I can say about his pieces that hasn’t already been said.
One thing that has been missing from this feast of work is the incorporation of song lyrics slapped over a corner… maybe he just didn’t allow himself enough time to do them. In a way, his pieces look cleaner without the lyrics, but in another way, they do add interest. I think that I have one more from this session to share, and there was another that was painted over before I had a chance to photograph it. I’m sure there will be more the next time Logoe hits town.
It is a joyful thing when Logoe comes to town, because he doesn’t imply come and paint one piece, oh no, he absolutely sweats it out with several pieces over a weekend. These blitzes have become a bit of a highlight or interruption in the steady flow of new work that we see every week in the city.
This is the first of several wonderful pieces of graffiti writing by Logoe that I will be sharing over the next month or so, all painted over one weekend. Logoe has painted a real beauty of one of my favourite walls, showcasing his distinctive thin script letters spelling out his name in beautifully complementary colours, finished with a horizontal splash of little oval dots running through the whole piece. It is so good that he keeps returning to Bristol to share his talent with us all.
I don’t tend to visit Lawrence Hill roundabout all that often as the turnover is pretty slow, and pieces tend to get tagged quite a lot. However I did get down there about a week ago and was rewarded with quite a few decent pieces, many of them is good condition, including this rather nice Smut piece.
Smut is an artist who turns out consistently excellent pieces. A writer who uses a distinctive script style, with lovely smooth curves and sharp borders. With a few more of these it won’t be long before I have enough for a gallery. Always good to stumble across these.
One of the highlights of doing what I do, posting about street art that is, has been the re-emergence of Logoe on his visits to Bristol this winter. When he comes, he doesn’t just do one piece, he does loads; I think I counted six or seven from his last trip. So productive is he, I think I’ll have easily enough for a gallery soon.
This beauty, in Sparke Evans Park, is a masterpiece in green, incorporating his wonderful script lettering and horizontal line of circle decorations. Such a distinctive style and aesthetically pleasing appearance adds to the wealth of outstanding graffiti writers who paint in Bristol. Look out for a whole bunch more to come.
Another fine piece of script writing in a series produced by Smut. Smut is an artist I know precious little about, but I definitely look forward to his bursts of activity on Bristol walls.
Smut has a very recognisable style, which is incredibly neat and tidy, and if I were to liken it with any other artist, I would say it is like a slimmed down version of Slim Pickings’ TES. It is a little difficult to make it out here, but the yellow fill is a beautiful blend of two colours with spots merging in the centre line. This is a superb piece of graffiti script writing.
Ooh what a beauty from Logoe, in the last place I would expect to find a piece by him, and just how well does it work on this wall? I love absolutely everything about this piece, and was super-pleased when I found it, especially as I haven’t noticed on any social media (at the time of writing).
To the untrained eye, the piece might read something like ‘vogue’, but for anyone who knows his work, the script lettering and horizontal dusting of spots would give him away long before reading the Logoe letters. I think that this is one of my favourite pieces by the artist and a gem of a find. Still more to come (I think).
An infrequent, yet most welcome, artist is Smut – ‘everyone loves a little bit of Smut’ remember? Recently Smut has hit a couple of walls with his characteristic clean and tidy script writing.
Although the tunnel at St Werburghs is a honey pot for graffiti and street art, it is a beast for getting decent photographs, and I am disappointed with these ones which are a little blurred. His other piece on the M32 roundabout (to come) is altogether more satisfying. It is always a pleasure finding a Smut piece.
It has been a pleasure and a privilege to see so many Logoe pieces go up over the past three months or so. I guess that we will have to enjoy them while they are here, because the nature of his work might keep him away from the streets for much of the spring and summer.
This is an utterly awesome piece of writing on the long wall under the M32, incidentally, one of my favourite walls in Bristol, even if it can be a bit tricky to photograph. Painted on a backdrop of earthy and subdued colours, the piece follows his tried and tested format of joined up script writing spelling out ‘Logoe’ liberally decorated with spots running horizontally through the lettering. All very nicely done and filling the space expertly. More to come from this purple patch from Logoe.
I met Logoe for the first time a couple of weeks ago at this spot while he was painting a collaboration with Silent Hobo, one of his old mates. Their collaboration, I don’t think even lasted a day, and I only have one WIP photograph of it, such is the ephemeral nature of street art in popular spots. Logoe comes across as a lovely bloke and was more than happy to talk about his work and his trips to Bristol.
Unlike his collaboration piece, this one has lasted well and I believe is still there, or at least it was last time I visited this spot. The delicate colours work really well on this script LOGOE entering. With many of his pieces Logoe likes to add a little quote or phrase and here he gives us:
“They say (she) dodged a bullet… but it put her in the ground”
This sounds like a lyric, but I am not too sure what from. Anyhow, it works well with this lovely piece. Logoe also told me that he had missed out a word. I am guessing it was the word ‘she’ that I inserted in brackets.
