Street Art

Sunday Postcard Art
Cette semaine,Sunday Postcard Art a choisi le thème Street Art.
Voici ma première participation à un de leur challenge.

This week,Sunday Postcard Art has the theme Street art.
Here is my first ever participation in one of their challenges.

The journal paper man has been created by a street artist and is sitting in a street in Seoul,Korea.
The robot,the armchair and the graffiti I used as wallpaper comes from google.
The tin cup comes from the kit Thing Finders by Holliewood Studio.
The light comes from the kit Love&War by Holliewood Studio.
I made the floor using 2 backgrounds papers,one coming from Fridge Art and the second coming from Art Dollies by Holliewood Studio.

Je souhaiterai rendre ici un hommage à un artiste de rue,Michael Davenport.A l'âge de 13 ans ,il perd ses deux bras suite à un électrocution.Bien qu'on lui ait dit qu'il ne pourrait plus jamais se servir de ses membres,il ne renonce pas à son passe-temps favori,l'art.Aujourd'hui il peint avec sa bouche,dans la rue.

I want to pay homage to Michael Davenport.
When he was 13 years old he was swinging a rope with a copper wire in it when it hit a power line and electrocuted him.
Although doctors said he would never be able to use his limbs again, Davenport was determined to not let his disabilities get in the way of pursuing one of his favorite hobbies, art.
Davenport can be found drawing sketches around downtown Athens surrounded by a group of amazed patrons.
