My Work: Spray Art

As promised – after my recent post “My Work: Sophia Loren” where I shared pictures of my last portrait drawing – here are the photos of my work where I’ve used spray paint and stencils.
A couple of years ago, after seeing Banksy’s documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop for the first time, I decided to make my own stencil (and maybe become a great street artist as well 🙂 ). I didn’t know much about stencils – I only knew that I wanted to create a bird for some reason. After painting one, editing the painting in Photoshop and printing a giant template for the stencil, I started to carve out the stencil into linoleum – which was quite difficult and took me a few weeks.
In my second attempt to make a stencil I used a photo of me and my friend and transformed it into a three layer stencil – this time I cut it out easily of some sturdy paper.

Last week I decided to use my two old stencils again and this is the result:

It makes my family and neighbours very happy whenever I use spray paint on the balcony. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this little gallery.


Thank you for visiting and have a great start into the week!

      Thank you for your words, this really made my day! After some more practice with spray paint, I might try to spray a legal wall – and if I come to Bristol I will let you know 🙂 Have a beautiful day!

    I am jealous. Looks good! You can be the first great street artist form Prague–and a woman.

      Thank you very much, I appreciate it! I don’t know what to say, I need a lot more practice and experience to call myself an artist. But we will see 😉
