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:

My Work: Sophia Loren

 Today’s post is not about street art, however, it could be possibly called street art if it would be placed somewhere on a wall or other surface in a public space. I just wanted to share that my hobby is not only to observe art, but also to create it.
Next time I will try to post something more street-art-oriented and use spray paint instead of a pencil.

I tried to draw the Italian actress Sophia Loren, my inspiration/template for this portrait was an old photo of her wearing this scarf.

Thank you for visiting, regular street art post will be up again tomorrow! 😉
