Who’s that Chick? — Rosie

As I’ve come to learn, stickers might be the easiest way to get your stuff out on the streets. But I’m always pleased to see the different ways artists create their own style within a tiny amount of space.

Walking down a busy street, I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary until my eyes happened to roam over the side of an (sadly) abandoned newspaper stand.

I thought it was the perfect backdrop – the red of the stand made the little heart pop out even more. It’s a very simple design but that’s what makes it so great – some sticker artists try to pack two much into two little space. The little character is also unique – her hair is a bunch of little circles and one eye is huge, while her nose is tiny. She also has no legs. So basically, she’s not your usual little cutesy Sharpied character. Hopefully there are many more ‘rosies’ out there.

Shaping Up to Be a Sticker Art Star

So I’ve done a few posts about sticker art but I’m quite intrigued by this artist mostly because I can tell he/she really wants to be found.

Because I saw about six stickers in the span of 10 minutes on a walk of only about 5 or 6 blocks.

It’s a simple sticker made up of three trapezoids stacked to create an upside down triangle in the middle. All of it is in a white circle with a black outline.

Definitely a symbol for something. Whatever it is, I kept finding sticker after sticker with every few steps I took. Someone took the time – and went to some good heights – to post their stickers anywhere a careful or even not-so-careful observer could see them. These are only a few of the ones I spotted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over-eager or admirably determined? You decide.

Meanwhile I’m curious to know the artist. Send me a message? If not, stay mysterious. That’s always cool too. I’ll be seeing your stickers.

 

Small Surprise

I’d been wondering where I could possibly find an art piece on the street next. I even took a few minutes during my lunch break to scout out a place a friend had told me contained a Banksy-like piece.

But, somehow, I had no luck. And I think it’s because so far the pieces have found me.

As happened with this tiny but very funny creation.

I was parking before heading to dinner at a delicious restaurant called Mas Malo, when I noticed a peculiar something on the huge parking sign in front of my car.

One of these things is not like the other….

Can you spot it? There is a funny little sticker over the ‘A’ and when I got closer, I realized it was someone’s face!

This is a much cheaper and oftentimes easier form of street art. This was probably a photograph to begin with and it was made into sticker form. From there the creator just find cool and random spots like this one and bam! – no spray cans or stencils needed. It’s basically how Shepard Fairey got famous, except his “OBEY” piece were much larger.

It seems like eventually, the idea of having your face out there and being able to post up your art so easily just caught fire and took cities ablaze. If done successfully, it’s like being semi-famous without anyone even knowing your name. I like the facial expression on this one and the small shadows near the nose. Who knows where its maker might be!
