Some of you may recall the images of Guido Van Helten which I featured on this blog and enthused about greatly (see Guido Blog entry).
Before the heavens opened in Cork City on Culture Night, I walked down Cork’s very own street of graffiti, Pine Street just off Camden Place. At the start of the street there are plenty of acid house “Mr. Men”, but as I got further along I took a bit more interest in some of the work.
In this post I feature an image of a baseball capped youth, with the face purely made up of rough triangles. The wall’s surface is itself very uneven, so it cannot have been easy to complete. The images below hopefully allow you to see the effect of the full image as well as the individual make up of this artist’s work.
Personally I think this artist has been very clever and creative and I admire the talent of someone painting so close up to produce an effect one can only appreciate by standing back. A bit of Guido on a smaller scale if you like.
What do you think of this piece of graffiti / art?
