You give love a bad name…

So as it was Valentine’s Day on Sunday we thought we’d get this up after we’d finished painting the piece we got up yesterday. It’s not particularly hard to find as we were painting in Tooting but you will need a ladder to get it. You can’t really read the text on this but it features a heart with a bullet hole and the following line from one of Bon Jovi’s seminal 80’s hits:

‘Shot through the heart and you’re to blame, darling you give love a bad name…’

Pretty fitting for Valentine’s in my view…

BONUS FACT: Bon Jovi were the last band to play at the old Wembley stadium. So there.

Sometimes I wonder if everyone is unobservant…

It’s not very often that we here at id-iom strive┬áto do something understated and somewhat minimal but that was entirely what we were aiming for with this piece. Have we succeeded? Who knows? It’s certainly less cluttered than our usual technique of throwing as much paint at the background as possible. Anyway, we decided that the metal shutters provided a nice textured background just as they were so threw up our stencil, coloured her in and then put up some additional text in a purposely small font which reads: ‘Sometimes I wonder is everyone if unobservant then I realise that at least you’re not’. Despite the fact I’ve just pointed it out to you I do wonder how many people will walk past this without ever bothering to read it. Well, the jokes on you sucker!┬áMany thanks to Irony and the Real Art of Street Art for hooking us up!
