One would have to have quite an imagination to be able to create such characters. Something nature does with ease.
These are friggin AWESOME. The detail and accuracy at that scale is utterly remarkable.
Do we take the time to see that this is a part of our renaissance or rather continual naissance? Our birth of the new forms of arts.
These are surely just the same. Arts pushing boundaries and evolving as they must with the time, using anything it can to thrive and stay alive.
These are our generations young new artists doing the same as those artists did then. The rebels, the visionaries the ones who continually surprise us and move us so masterfully forward.
Like the rappers, I believe, our new voice of poetry, not all perhaps, but the great and the bright and even film scores surely our new equivalent classical composers.
Because it did not sound classical or old to them then did it? It was current then, and often groundbreaking even.
Wasnt it, of it’s time, a revolution of the old. Its ancestors natural evolution and progression onwards?
Though it is true that often Art is soberly lead to where the money is In Film most definitely too, that’s where people now get paid to write scores for film and tv. Which is no differently to a king or nobleman commissioning a portrait in the 15 C.
Which undoubtedly has always coloured the freedom of some arts over the centuries.
This is not.
This has no money attached to it, no rules, just Art straight and free from the heart.
And you gotta love that. X
I love a bit of body Art and these are some real artists and genuine works of Art.
Although I don’t have any my self, i have designed a few.
Maybe because I had family in places were vaccinations were essential, I grew up with so many that I am became more than a little shy of needles.
Always a pain and seemingly more of a necessary evil to me. Rather than being associated with any thing nice, let alone a passion of mine like art.
Apart from I do so love them on others. Well Only The beautiful ones obviously. Anyone who has ever watched the hysterical tatoo fixers? Will know that some are just so not art. But also can end in some unbelievable disasters. Particularly when decided on when alcohol was involved.
Plus my love of fashion means I could never chose just one design, I would want to change it all the time, so never going to happen. Also I love the giant arty ones, which are just Ouch. X
Curiously my tattoo addicted friends claim not to feel it much, or at least don’t seem to mind it. Quite clearly they don’t, with the amount they have. But for someone who thought they had a fairly high pain threshold, still…Naaa.
Some of these are just gorgeous Mmmmmmastertimepieces. X
Big love all. 💜
I love how real all this stuff is. So brilliantly, lyrically and musically fantastic.
There is a kind of honest melancholy, perhaps inherent in the weather here? But also such an open heart laid bare, that touches me every time with some of these.
Such an superb energy and unique flavour or flava, Lol that is so quintessentially British and I Love that. It lifts my cheeky london side and gives me back my swagger and a little f**ck you in my step on the days That I need that most.
Because even a peace loving speader of light and gratitude needs to set boundaries sometimes too. Often perhaps, maybe even because of it.
So first Plan B… well what can I say, I just love, love, love each and every brilliant thing that he/they do. He is obviously a very bright lad, with a ginormous heart which is easy to see in music and lyrics he spouts.
I bet he is one of those with endless talents. Including acting I noticed too i was pleased to see. Speaking as an ex drama school girl, he really can act too. Bringing that same natural honesty, ease and genuine street to his roles, which I appreciate.
He is a better actor than many who call themselves so and who work full time in the profession. But I bet he’s the kind of person who could do anything he was given the opportunity for or set his mind to.
Then Wiley, who I have an idea is another bright one, as I am sure rappers often are. I love the Grime sense of humour, it’s bare faced witty, cheek and quite honestly it’s brilliant Britishness. I love a song that makes me smile and they seem do seem to do that.
For me they are the sound of London.
What do you think?
Mmmmmmmmmm that’s all I have to say about this….
