1533. Brunel Way bridge (7)

I love, love, love this collaboration piece by Face 1st and Tash Bee. Totally understated and beautifully sprayed on a concrete column under Brunel Way, this piece is tucked away and pretty much out of view. There is a serenity about the piece that works so very well, and the setting is just a perfect way to frame the piece.

I don’t know how long these two have been collaborating for, but there have been a spate of their joint pieces cropping up all over the place just recently. For me, this is the best yet. Their use of colour and form is similar, but each has a very distinctive look. The top section is by Face 1st and beneath it is a superb styalized portrait by Tash Bee. I have met neither of these artists, but it I keep looking, it is just a matter of time.

A happy find.

1514. The Bearpit (148)

What a lovely piece in The Bearpit from Tasha Bee, who not so long ago painted in collaboration with Hazard in St Werburghs tunnel. I know little about her or her work, but she is very much on my radar at the moment. I think she has recently been collaborating with PWA, in particular Face 1st.

This is a beautiful impish character full of colour and vigour. It is something quite different from the usual fare in The Bearpit and all the better for it. Everything that I have seen from Tasha Bee I like, so I am definitelty going to try and track down more of her work.
