4099. Sparke Evans Park (22)

Sparke Evans park is becoming a bit of a ‘go to’ spot these days for both artists and photographers/chroniclers, as the quality and high turnover of work necessitates more regular visits. This is a superb collaboration from Spanish duo Dabuten Tronko and Sin Prisas

The two rather scary looking vultures (I think) appear to be squabbling over an eyeball suspended between the pair. On the left is Sin Prisas’ bird, painted with great skill and class. It is a pity we don’t see more of his work in the city.

To the right is a vicious vulture by Dabuten Tronko, and the amazing thing is that the artists have managed to paint with incredibly similar styles, and it is only the finer detail, such as the thickness of the outer border, that gives this away as being a collaboration between two artists. Their signatures help in this respect too.

This is an absolutely fabulous collaborative piece and is right up at the top end of these kinds of pieces in the city.
