i was very lucky to visit this! this was an exhibition held by lazarides gallery
-underneath waterloo, beside and underneath leake street !
plus i like the work this gallery displays, always something edgy and street-arty
|remind you of anyone?|
'a face like a smacked arse'
|Never noticed before but the road sign is all in capitals|
I think this type id like to work into as some kind of headline or header to my spread.
definately have to manipulate it further. was originally thinking of making a stencil out of it and playing with some street art style type based on this font, making it drippy and splatty, maybe a couple stickers on it.
or at least distoerted like the pasted letters later on..
|i noticed lots of people, lots of cars coming and going.|
people going to work and people actually working
these people wer doing some photo shoots here
|comparing this to the road sign, i think the font might be the same|
at least similar
i like the way you can see it looks official, but it curves and just isnt quite 100%, like something beyond
and i think sums th eplace up. people i have spoken to previously have told me its technically illegal to paint here,
the police will turn a blind eye and even encourage you with beutiful, passionate paintings and will infact act when they see people damaging and tagging the nice paintings
very forward thinking and open minded
|no idea what mysterious businesses are conducted behind the walls|
|quite like the sign.|
its dirty and has been exposed to use and and the environment
as if the streets like some kind of a tidal mark
|coming back to my earlier concept of cropping into a part and 'texture' of the type of thing on offer is a much more apt way of communicating the art colour and variety on offer down here|
heres a potential example
|things happen here|
i have no idea what
its still a normal place at the end of the day
and that makes it even better and accessible to a wide audience
quite clever using the light in this way
