Picturesonwalls pop up shop ‘Marks and Stencils’ opened its doors to the public earlier this week. Forming a major part of the store is an exhibition by French artist Dran. Entitled ‘My Everyday Life’ it includes a character called Scribouille, a homeless puppet whose life is devoted to nothing but creating art. Dran has an eye for detail and a great wit all matched by his ability to draw. I’ll let the pictures do the talking:
Scribouille at work on a 3d drawing
Work on cardboard plays with the already present printed words
Elsewhere there are other pieces on reclaimed objects like this guy stealing a frame and leaving the art.
For 50p you can buy a postcard and create your own little masterpiece to put up on the wall at the show. Dran, himself, is going to choose a winner and if you would like yours returned remember to put a stamp and your address on the back.
This card had beem modified to include the text 10Foot put over Banksy’s Old Street cherub piece. 10Foot recently started a 26 month stretch inside for graffiti, more details here:
I liked this one, the picture had been customised to change the view entirely.
‘My Everyday Life’ is at ‘Marks and Stencils’, 1 Berwick Street, Soho, London. Opening times on pictures on walls
