Summertime scavenger hunt–instalment 8

I was hoping to come across this artist because I love to watch him work.

graffiti-artist---k-pertiet

He uses spray paint, newspaper, old bowls and a blade to create amazing fantasy-scapes

The red plant on the right – the leaves were created using a sponge, the trunk was scrape with the blade to reveal earlier layers of paint and the blue plant was created using pleated newspaper.
He sells the pieces after they dry (takes over an hour, I overheard) and has a collection too.  I’m happy to donate each time I watch him create.

I’m using one of these for the graffiti art item in Rinda’s scavenger hunt – because he is creating using spray paint cans and doing it in public

Stunning pieces - we spotted a spray can artist in Barcelona and DD was fascinated at the effects he could achieve.

Wow. I wonder if he can make a living doing that? He's very talented.

And it's a great find for the hunt!

I love this on oh so many levels! It could also been someone painting outside their house.
