2445. Dean Lane skate park (247)

I can’t think how many artists have graced the pages of Natural Adventures for the first time this year, but is must be well in excess of twenty and Dasco is just the latest in that roll of honour (if indeed it is an honour appearing in these pages, I don’t mean to be presumptuous or big headed). Although this is the first time I have featured Dasco’s work I know it won’t be the last.

The colour schemes and overall design are fantastic and the complexity and accuracy of the fills is really impressive. I am not certain, but I think that the mischievous rolling of a joint to the left of the writing is also by Dasco. The whole thing is the work of a very skilled and talented artist. At this moment I know nothing about Dasco so I guess I’ll have to start doing some homework. Great piece.

1829. Jardins de les Tres Xemeneies, Barcelona (4)

The joy of going through archives is unearthing old pictures and this is especially pleasurable when they are from trips away. I took this picture in the Jardins de les Tres Xemeneies, Barcelona last March, on a short break with my daughter. I am indebted to No Grey Walls for telling me about the spot, which I’m not sure I would have found without his advice.

All I know about the piece is that it is by Kram, and that it is in the middle of what looked like a collaboration wall. In my view, I think this was the best bit of the wall and the only artist I could identify. No Grey Walls may be able to add more. One of the luxuries of posting holiday street art is that you aren’t expected to know anything about the artists, and guess what…
