So apparently this is a self-portrait of Che (yeah, as in "Che Guevara"), one of the people who lives behind the infamous Grafton St wall.
The wall of his house is a legal haven for stencillers. Really dig his pro bono efforts. Can't stop reading about all the buzz at #cheasincheguevara.
I've been learning how to stencil. Figured a street art blogger should know the craft. Another few weeks of Google searches and I'll be bombing this wall.
So far I've done a bunch of self-portraits. In these, I'm scantily dressed and posing in provocative ways, which I then accentuate by painting while scantily dressed and posing in provocative ways. I usually stand on a trestle and BEND FORWARD so onlookers get a good look at my tush.
Psychedelic tiger. Good name for a club. Someone should call the guys over at Good God.
Mr Skel, if you're reading this, why do animals inspire you?
Really enjoying these Charlie Chaplin stencils. Might torrent some of his movies and relive the magic.
This one is from Houl.
Writing a haiku about a tiger resting in shade. Watch this space.
I've seen a few of these around. The gushing sexual overtones (minus the blue doodle) are weird. Never pictured Charlie Chaplin in that way.
