2162. M32 Spot (40)

Right, there is an interesting thing going on here with the work of Panskaribas, and I’m not entirely certain how it all works. I understand that when he signs the piece with his Reseau signature, it indicates that it is a collaboration, but this piece looks like his work only. I think that Reseau might be the crew he belongs to and that there are one or two others who paint with him from time to time, which would explain the mix of styles seen in some of his pieces. The members of this crew appear to draw inspiration from the Cubists and surrealists though.

This is a witty piece showing one of his cartoonesque characters viewed from behind. I love the ‘Picasso’ hands and the cheeky face looking over his shoulder. Really interesting art, and so unlike anything else on the streets of Bristol at the moment.

Together with Zake (see previous post), Panskaribas is emerging as one of my favourite new(ish) arrivals on the Bristol scene. Both artists are becoming more bold with their wall selections as their confidence grows and it is a great thing to witness. I would continue to describe Panskaribas’s work as cubist doodles in spray-paint with a dash of surrealism thrown in.

One can see all sorts of references to various modern art movements in his work, but his skill has been ion blending these and coming up with something quite unique and really unusual in street art. An acquired taste perhaps, but so worth spending time to look at what is going on in these paintings – do I spot some Matisse in here?
