Another road you wouldn’t really spot this, running between Ashley Road and Shaftesbury Avenue, but one totally worth checking out for lots of varied work, some awesome. A large post this, but really do read to the end, it gets better!
Starting up at the Ashley Road end, there’s this odd but good piece by, i think, Toy Soul.
Titled ‘Keep da peace’, not seen Toy Soul before, maybe someone working under a different name?
Along from that, there’s this illegible stencil, let me know if you can translate it better than i!
Another ghost, good grief!
Another ‘Jean’ japanese stencil…
Think this has been there a while now.
Now the road really starts to get good. This looks like Paris’s style to me, but couldn’t make it out quite.
This door, with another ‘bum rush the show’ stencil as on Norrissville Road
Then the real excellence starts. This piece is a large mural with this air mail letter next to it. In the context of the large piece next to it, it’s clearly a message abroad to someone from the TCF and Aagh, and immense gratitude to anyone speaking spanish better than me who can who can translate it properly! (note the little Feek detail in the stamp, sweet!)
Here’s the piece, love it so much!
Can you work out what’s going on?
It’s one of the big Feek Easter Island style heads with a radio controller…
…flying a TCF and Aagh banner…
…from a land featuring, amongst other things, a Sickboy Temple…
…across to another head, painting a picture in a sunhat with a bottle of booze. The writing across the top reads “Welcome to ‘Irie Island’!! – “Cheers Comfort!!” “Feek, Paris, Ponk, Eko, Xenz, Phet”. Mentions Irie Island in the spanish letter above, must get it translated!
To finish somewhat incongruously at the end, a really old Ghostboy sticker, never knew the man was so tall!
I’m gonna do more digging on this large piece, the way R.I.P has been sprayed over it a couple of times makes me think it may be a little more of a memorial than the happy tone of it suggests.
