The mid weekend of February proved to be arctic with some rarely seen white stuff falling from the London sky... And it happened to be the time of a street art event organised by London Calling Blog and Rise Gallery in Croydon.
For this very occassion I teamed up with a renowned artist - Aspire; known for painting amazing birds here in the UK. As always, first I meticulously folded the origami reference and photographed it accordingly for this two-arch piece.
As always all captured in a video here. From folds to ashes... ( have I mentioned before I like setting things on fire? )
Moreover, the video contains a yet another snippet of my brand new song from soon to be released "Blood, Sweat & Paper Cuts" EP !
Lastly, if you would like to support my art, enabling me to paint and fold even more, I have just put up the original illustration behind the bird piece for sale at my shop here.
Here's the latest result.
Starting 2k17 strong. My best folds to date. Watch the dog coming to life from folds to wall in the new video below. I trully enjoyed folding the dog then painting it in this amazing abandoned location in Soho.
Painted as part of The BrokeDown Palace Jam organised by London Calling blog.
Latest addition to my scrunched-up emojis on a Post-it note...
Sorry, but nobody is coming down the chimney. Eat the cookies and drink the milk...
Have a good one everyone! UpNess
The response to the original mural keeps surprising me and has been great. It keeps resurfacing on the internet, so I decided to immortalise it in print even though the original piece is long gone. I have also just put a video together to show you the buffalo coming to life. Most importantly, I will also give 15% of the print profits to Sacred Stone Legal Defense Fund to support the legal defense of warriors protecting land, water, and human rights.
