4013. M32 roundabout J3 (353)

The third piece by Smut on Natural Adventures, and I couldn’t put it any better than the artist himself does… “Everybody loves Smut”. Well if not everybody, at least I do, and that’s what matters.

As with his other pieces, it is the sharpness of his lines that really catches the eye, and the script form of the whiting is rather seductive. This is a really accomplished piece, as the fills demonstrate. I’m looking forward to meeting the artist at some point in the future, if only to find out about the techniques used.

In the background of this photograph, you can see the iconic telecoms tower that anyone who leaves Bristol along the M32 will be familiar with. And, in this hallowed spot, Smut has given us another beautifully crafted piece of graffiti writing in his very distinctive style.

These pieces by Smut are so easy to look at and enjoy. The simple curves are superbly clean, and he has really treated us with a beautiful wavy line intersecting the word horizontally and some great colour fades along the way. The little pink dots round the piece off nicely. I have to say I am loving Smut’s work and hope to see a whole load more.

In recent weeks, I have noticed a few of these Smut pieces appearing about the place, of which I think this might have been the first. Smut is obviously not a beginner, the letters are beautifully crafted and the lines crisp and clean, but perhaps is new to Bristol, I don’t know.

Although quite tricky to photograph, the writing is beautifully presented i9n red and gold, a fine combination. The white accents add a beautiful touch and provide a 3D effect. It looks like they might have been painted with a bit of a mask, because the curves are very neat and tidy.  Nice work from an artist whose Instagram handle is @everybody.loves.smut.
