Well there is a lot of Art I see around me and I am lucky that living in a well populated City I get to se a lot of my favourite Street Art.
There is one group of artists that caught my eye and I felt that I had to photograph and capture the style of Art they do.
The group is known locally as the TMC and one artist in particular struck a chord with me , probably because I’m from the generation that used to watch a certain TV show quite avidly for a while and the connection was immediate! (Those of you will understand when you look at the image)
I feel that the way I have chosen this week’s image meets the remit of “By another artisans hand” and “handmade work” very well these artists (AO pronounced Oh)creates what I call pictures of light relief or to brighten up the environment (which it does for many of us). Or some are sending a message. For me it was that connection with something fun in my past and of a time in my life when I was at the top of my game!
These artists don’t have a template they spray paint freehand and have to see the whole picture before it’s finished in their heads then bring it to completion on the wall. Practicing and seeing what the spray can can do, this is their brushes ready loaded with colour.
AO is a Korat man, in his late 30’s and deals in antiques and has his own bar- just goes to show art comes from all walks of life! Oh and he paints bears too….
A selection of other I took around the City.
