BRISTOL ARTIST CREATES ‘SHREDDED GRAFFITI ART’

Long standing and highly respected Bristol graffiti artist, Soker, known for his flamboyant and detailed ‘Wild Style’ lettering has created a concept artwork in the heart of Stokes Croft.

Shredded!

For the first time ever, as far as we know, he has created a piece of graffiti art that has been shredded!
Soker who was once in the same graffiti crew as Banksy in the early 1990’s, decided to embark upon this concept because of how close his artwork would be to Banksy’s Mild Mild West, and was influenced by Banksy’s stunt at the London auction house in late 2018, when the Girl with the Heart Shaped balloon was shredded shortly after being sold for more than £1 million. By all accounts this doubled the value of this piece of Banksy art.

If there’s a man in your life, or in the parental unit of your family, where does he sit in the stack of Christmas presents you have to buy? It saddens me that my great man, who I love, is now not the recipient of the first gifts in my basket, because, that’s now the kids. He’s not changed, and nor have I, so, why do men in your life become harder to buy presents for…

The end is in sight! Two more days to go…and I’m feeling increasingly weak, lethargic and headachey…how on earth do the world’s refugees live on these weekly rations for 10 years or more?! If I’ve learned one thing from taking part in this year’s Ration Challenge, it’s that I’m incredibly grateful for the amount of choice we’re lucky to have.

Day 6 began with a cup of black tea at 8.30am, while giving the small person his breakfast. And I was impatient for him to finish…after breaking the £400 sponsorship barrier the previous evening, I knew that I was entitled to the “reward” of adding 120g of the protein of my choice to my rations for the last two days, and I was desperate for some additional flavour.

 

Ration Challenge Day 6 - Black Tea

 

So as soon as I’d cleaned him up, we headed straight to the supermarket to buy a block of halloumi. I could have had anything – others taking part in this year’s challenge had chosen ingredients like chorizo or Parma ham when they hit that sponsorship milestone – but with halloumi a staple food in Syria, I wanted to keep it relatively authentic.

To keep things as interesting as possible, I decided to use 60g of it per day for the last two days, and in my evening meals only, to give me something to look forward to at the end of the day. So at 11.35am, I used half my remaining flour to make an onion crepe (flour, salt, water and thinly sliced onion), which I enjoyed with a spoonful of mashed tinned sardines. And you know what? I really did enjoy it. Saving the strongly flavoured ingredients until the end of the challenge was definitely the right thing to do…

 

Ration Challenge Day 6 - Crepe

 

I realised I still had a load of cooked chickpeas in the fridge, too. The original intention was to make falafel – but instead I mashed them roughly with salt, paprika and oil, and roasted them until crispy.

And they made up part of my evening meal – if I pretended hard enough, they almost tasted like croutons. At 6.35pm, the rice made a reappearance (I’m really going off the stuff pretty quickly…), along with chopped fried halloumi, half my leftover hummus and those crispy chickpea “croutons” – it was an incredibly salty meal, but my body had been telling me that I needed salt all day.

 

Ration Challenge Day 6 - Evening Meal

 

Only 4 pints of water on day 6 of my Ration Challenge – I probably should have had more. And I was in bed by 10pm again, absolutely shattered – but this time, in the knowledge that I only had one more day of my Ration Challenge to go. What would the final day have in store…?
