Hi Saint....me and fingerz had a chat and giggle about this on the Banksy new stuff thread yesterday lol. Karl's piece was put up a few months ago in Linthorpe Road Middlesbrough. Im sure Banksy is a massive inspiration to Karl as he is to a lot of emerging artsits IMO
Just noticed there's a few new on his site Mon, PPI was done a while back just off Stockton High Street near the Zanzibar....just noticed this new to Karl's site it says its Middlesbrough Empire..Stiff Little Fingers are at the Empire in a few weeks.!! Class
I really like this piece. Like the way the arc of the angels wings seem to match that of the church like pew. The Empire is a really famous local spot for music and that's probably the conection with the beat box. Liking a lot of his new stuff .
Think its fair to say the quality of this stencil work is very poor & basic. A local gallery is trying to flog some of his pieces that are touched up with B&Q paints.....the lollipop knight on prince regent street is particually badly done.
been on a Karl hunt today for my collection of snaps. got the shopping trolley gator one and got well muddy getting to it and raised the attention of the local community coppers! also got the Saltburn knitting one - it has been covered in plastic but that seems to be ruining it! had a look in Ar
