I saw the work of @MyDogSighs here in Bristol last year for Upfest the annual urban art festival. Street artists from all over the world descend on North Street, the street where I live, producing the most amazing street art and graffiti on every available wall, hoarding etc.
I particularly like his ‘Hug’ street art images and obtained his permission to incorporate this work into my own composition. For this piece I have persuaded lovely Emily White (@ablemabeldesigns) to be my muse. She has a fabulous collection of Forties/Fifties inspired clothes and is wearing one of her vibrant dresses for this painting. She also works at @rhubarbjumble which sells beautiful retro clothes and furniture. Pop in and have a look at 52 North Street, Bedminster, Bristol just up the road from my studio.
My idea is that she is deep in thought, possibly worrying about a problem and the Hug is comforting her, hence the title. You, the viewer, will have your own thoughts. I like placing my trademark woman in a situation which changes the dynamic of the 2D street art, bringing art to life and vice versa.
