WANT TO KNOW WHATS WRONG WITH THESE! WELL I’LL TELL YA! THEY’RE WAY TOO SMALL! GIVE’EM A CLICK AND THEY’LL BE SO MUCH BIGGER, SO MUCH CRISPER, SO MUCH SEXIER!
GO ON….BE A DEVIL!
So after two posts the real reason for my trip to deepest, darkest Birmingham becomes apparent.
STREET ART! It’s been month’n’months’n’months since I last wandered the Brummie back streets checking out the paint, and I’ve been desperate to see what new pieces might have appeared, maybe also a little anxious about whether any of my favourites are gone for ever. (Remember this is the city that first introduced me to street art and is the home to my all time fave piece…At least I hoped it still was, these things have a habit of disappearing).
First stop was ‘SUKI 10C’ a building I photographed last year. The devilishly attractive chap you can see here is completely new..In fact this one side of the building is totally different to the last time I was here, and, judging by this and subsequent finds, there seems to be a bit of a ‘Bad Tooth’ trend amongst the Brummie can jockeys. Anyone remember the comic character Grimly Fiendish way back in the 1970’s? Our pink faced friend here is his more contemporary double…..I wonder if the artist knows?
Even more dental decay on this super stressed gentleman…He’s another fresh arrival and between you and me, I don’t think he’s quite settled in yet.
I reckon she’s in a lot of discomfort with those choppers. Doesn’t look at all happy and I gave her a very wide birth on the way to see if My favourite piece had been painted over or had been lost to the elements.
Still here and not only is there not a bad tooth in sight, but the powers that be have put a yellow line along the curb.
I can see you properly you big orange beauty.
