Five Banksy locations snapped in London on 30th September 2017 ~ Three around the Barbican ~ The Flower Painter in Bethnal Green ~ Phone Tap still in pristine condition can be found off Chrisp Street in Poplar. How long these and a few others in London will be on tap to freely view on the streets in situ remains to be seen!!!

Tweeting Back

I was bound to go back to Bristol to snap the finished artwork of Irony &  Boe from their collaboration along Back Road, during the Upfest 2017 street art festival. I guess this is a kind of tweeting so a birdie tells me!

DJ Derek

Posted in Artwork, Banksy, observation, Off The Wall, Street Art with tags , , , , , , , , on August 18, 2017 by lkthayer

Two Bristol legends just a stones throw away came under my radar. One I was seeking out and one by pure chance. The mural above “One Love” is a tribute to a local man well-known in Bristol as DJ Derek. My pure chance discovery was painted by Serp, Deam2, Piro and Rpm on the side of a house along Richmond Avenue. I only discovered this artwork in my search for a very faded Banksy nearby under the St Andrews Street sign.  Another bonus to the left of “One Love” is a Stewy full size stencil tribute to DJ Derek. Sadly Derek went missing in 2015 and was found dead eight months later in March 2016 aged 78. The story of the ex accountant turned reggae DJ can be found on these two links. https://www.bristol247.com/news-and-features/news/dj-dereks-death-confirmed-at-cribbs-causeway-1457700279/   https://www.bristol247.com/news-and-features/people/obituary-dj-derek/

Up there as my breast snap from Upfest!

This is a section of artwork I snapped being painted at the 2017 Upfest street art festival by the Berlin based Mezla. I came across Mezla painting in the park opposite the Ashton Gate football stadium. He told me he decided not to paint at his designated venue among the crowds,  but instead ventured into the park to paint a wall in a more peaceful environment… I don’t think many other visitors to Upfest will see his outstanding work… I’m so glad I took a stroll into the park and found him in action!!!! Mezla is an impressive cool artist that I hope we will see a lot more of…..

Street art in Iceland

Posted in Artwork, arty farty, Collage, Graffiti, observation, Off The Wall, Sticker, Street Art with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2017 by lkthayer

Lots of nice street art can be found in Iceland including D*FACE and ELLE snapped in Reykjavik. Other artist I can credit for snapping their street art are:  AGENT FRESCO,  EVOCA 1, ULFUR ULFUR, STROK, MAMMUT, NOT DEAD YET, KIDDY DUST, UGLY BOYS…. There are many  more murals that I could not snap due to not having enough time in Iceland. Well worth a visit but be warned Iceland is a very expensive country for eating drinking and accommodation!!!
