Kitty Graffiti

I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to start putting some photos from our recent trip around Europe up on the blog.

As today is World Cat Day (isnt every day?) I thought I might start with some feline inspired graffiti we spotted in Berlin. If you have already been to visit this special city you will know it is super charged with amazing street art and super cool graffiti – perfect for Instagram.
Needless to say I took a gazmillion photos (no, I wont bore you with all of them) but here are a few kitty specific pieces. These pud-tats where all created by Rabea Senftenberg

Hope you had a purrfect World Cat Day?

Street art in Cape Town

Woodstock (Cape Town) is an amazing part of this beautiful city, not only is a “melting pot” of all different cultures, but it is also the home to some pretty impressive street art – my favourite of which is by the famous Chinese street artist DALeast.
The first three photos are some (very blurry) Instagram shots of his work that I took. The rest are all shots from DALeast’s website of work he has done in Cape Town.
Next time you are mooching about on a Saturday, do yourself a favor and drive around the back streets on Woodstock – you cannot help but be impressed.

Hell Yeah!

2013 is going to be a year of new, exciting and challenging adventures – bring it on!

(Regular blog posts to resume early next week, I will be out of action for the better half of this week as I am having round 3 of Lasik surgery)

Little People Project

Slinkachu has been abandoning little people in the streets since 2006.
His miniature scenes are created using remodeled train set people. He carefully places them in real life scenes and then photographs them up close and from a distance. Slinkachu likes to think of his street art as being subtle and sensitive, “I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works.”

Slinkachu is also famous for other imaginative forms of ephemeral art such as his Inner City Snail “A slow-moving street art project”. He creates teeny tiny graffiti tags (using non-toxic paint of course) on the shells of snails and then releases them into the urban wild, photographing them as they charge off.

Ephemeral Art

I have noticed more and more interesting street art in and around Cape Town. As soon as I get my new camera I intend snapping shots of these temporary gems.
Wooster Collective is a great showcase of ephemeral art found in cities around the world. These super sized birds can be found in Dublin by famed street artist Steve Power.
