Paper art

Yesterday’s colourful post put me in the mood to share some graffiti with you. Today I’ll be showing you some examples of paper graffiti

– where the art has been applied to paper, which in turn has been pasted onto walls, doors, etc. Enjoy!

The first two are by B-Toy for sure. Can anyone confirm if the 3rd one is also by this artist?

Bird woman

Two ladies in sepia tints – I like how newspaper excerpts have been used as a collage for the one below.

Blood shot

I wonder who this sharp dresser with the blood shot eyes is by? Does anyone know? Feel free to let me know by commenting below…

Snap!

Three cute examples in black and white. I find the repetitiveness of the lucky cat quite interesting.

Bird

The intricacy of the bird (above) and heart-in-hands (below) and the similarity in their style make me think these were done by the same artist.  What do you think? Do you know who it is by?

Heart in pain

One with a clearly signed name: kenzostreetart (above) which I presume must be Kenzo Street Art. The illustration is very good, I think.

Pez on paper

This is the first time I’ve seen Pez graffiti on paper. As always, the grinning fish makes me smile.

I love Ocaña

An alternative use for a cake doily – the result is very kitsch and rather naïve, but I think it’s quite cute.

The door below is so full of all kinds of graffiti (lots of it in paper form) that it’s hard to decide what to focus on. I leave you to study it and decide which part you like best… Fins demà!

    Mmm….I couldn’t say for sure, but I don’t think the bird and the hands-in-heart are by the same person – the latter looks much more sophisticated. It reminds me of Swoon, though it’s not one of her best known images. In any case it is a nice one! x Rachael
    ps: Nice blog theme btw ;-)

      Thanks very much for your feedback, Rachel! I agree, the heart-in-hands is more sophisticated… if I find out more, I’ll let you know! xx Lisette

    Hola
    The one of the cake doily, is an homage to Ocaña, the famous Ramblas artist. An Icon of the “Movida Barcelonesa” if this ever existed.

    Here one of his performances:

    Part of a biopic by Ventura Pons.

      Gracias Marc! I had not heard of Ocaña and was not aware he was such an important part of what could be called the Movida Barcelonesa. I’m going to read on him and find out as much as I can. Thanks also for sharing the clips – great! Una abraçada

    The Truffaut-Doinel Stencil is by Sr Formica
    Qui est Antoine Doinel?
