3025. Brunel Way bridge (39)

On now to part 4 of the Black Lives Matter wall organised by Pekoe, mobilising the RBF crew into creating one of the most memorable collaborations of the year so far. This part of the wall is by Hazard and is similar to the clenched fist that she painted on Turbo Island a week or so earlier.

This is such a strong image made stronger by Hazard’s mastery of colour and shading, creating an almost iridescent effect. A beautiful and emotionally charged piece. There is a rather nice little cameo appearance by Smak whose ‘no justice, no peace’ writing edges the top of the fist. So good to see this as part of this collaboration.
