3134. M32 Cycle path (72)

Soker got off to a slow start after lock down, but is gathering speed now, which is great for anyone interested in the work of this great graffiti writer. This lovely piece along the M32 cycle path spelling out SOKEM is a real treat.

The colour scheme is one he has used before in Bedminster although the style of writing is quite different. Of particular note in this work are the red stri[es on the 3D shading, proviting extra depth, and the blue bubbl;es for interest. Overall a sumptuous piece.

2023. Dean Lane skate park (190)

As long as Soker keeps turning out fabulous graffiti writing, I will keep photographing and sharing them. This one from a few weeks back was part of a wall shared with Dibz, which I have already posted. It is a beautiful chrome piece with blue and black shadows. Showy and subtle both at the same time.

It is interesting that when I post his pieces on Instagram, they generally get fewer likes than street art pieces, which leads me to conclude that graffiti writing is more of an acquired taste…that is except for his Upfest 2018 Simpsons piece, which was my all-time most popular Instagram post. I wish I knew how these things worked.

56. Jubilee Street (1)

This mural rather dates itself with its portrayal of the obsession of the selfie. I guess it is called ‘I’m taking a selfie’. It is one of several works in the immediate vicinity that have the ASK signature on it.

OK, so I am new to all of this, but it took me quite a while to find out who or what ASK is. It turns out that ASK is a Bristol crew, the acronym stands for After School Klub. As far as I can work out, there are four members of the ASK crew, and they are Epok, Sokem, 3Dom and Sepr. I am not sure which of them is behind this particular work, which is perplexing.

In addition to ASK, some of their individual or collaborative works are tagged with ASK KTF or ASKTF. The KTF is another TLA (Three Letter Acronym) which I understand to be ‘Keeping Things Fresh’. I will feature more of their works soon.

UPDATE June 2016 – There are at least 14 or so members of ASK, but I still don’t know which members are responsible for this piece.
