4518. St Werburghs tunnel (298)

I don’t see enough of Inca the Mole’s work, not because he isn’t painting, but more because I don’t seem to be very good at finding his spots. I couldn’t miss this one in St Werburghs tunnel though on my last visit there.

This piece of graffiti writing from The Mole is absolutely fabulous. The letters are really crisp and sharp along with a thin white border. The letters spelling out Inca are filled with four colours transitioning horizontally really nicely. To cap off the piece, and the bit that stands out are the little peace signs floating through the middle. Some good drips too. All in all a well executed piece from LRS artist The Mole.

Another debut on Natural Adventures – crumbs, there have been so many of those this year, it is no wonder that I am having difficulty with keeping up. This is a rather charming piece by The Mole, who come to Bristol for Eman’s birthday paint jam at the end of July.

Naturally enough, The Mole likes to paint moles, and this one is sporting a rather fetching collection of pink peace symbols. The signature says Inca, and to give the artist his full name it is ‘Inca the Mole’. I like these kinds of megatag pieces, where an artist settles on a theme and then replicates it with variations. Lovely to see, and definitely not the last I will be posting from this west of England artist.
