I came across the work of @brknwrld on Instagram and was drawn to one particular piece called Enjoy Your Cocktails. I felt I could make something good involving it and have the artist’s permission to use it. The red version I saw and liked seems to have been a mock up on canvas for the final stencil on a door in Grenoble, I think. Brkn/wrld describes himself as an Artist of Chaos and it’s worth a look at his Instagram page. A very clever and inventive artist.
My take as always, is to add in my trademark woman to make a completely different composition. By placing a 3 dimensional figure in the vicinity of the 2 dimensional street art, the work of art is changed significantly. The art is brought to life and vice versa.
So the waiter is offering his tray of Molotov Coca Cola Cocktails, and my young blonde is almost high fiving him with her Diet Free Coke, or maybe just wants to put her bottle on his tray. Who knows?
I am loving painting in this style. Living on North Street in Bristol I am privileged to see extraordinary Street art every year on my street, courtesy of Upfest, the urban paint festival supported by over three hundred street artists from all over the world. I am very lucky.
