I heart Fitzroy. To celebrate moving in to my awesome Fitzroy studio, I created a series of 12 original paintings on chipboard panels with aerosol, acrylic paint + pigment ink. The images were quick sketches of Kaff characters (mistakes + all), signed + numbered.
I placed the 12 panels around Fitzroy last night, + was stoked to find out that some had already been re-homed by morning, neat.
Lisa found ‘Emile’ within a couple of hours (happy photo courtesy Lisa Ritchie):
Sam found a few panels, including ‘Charlie’, during separate trips (neat action photo courtesy Sam Andrews):
And Rowena + Linda also found panels during a sunny early-morning walk (photos courtesy of Rowena Naylor Photography). I love this action pic, on the same rickety chair that I used to place ‘Noah’ up high:
Maude sniffed out ‘William’ down a lane that I had never seen before last night:
Less than 24 hours after they were released, all of the panels have been found, + the characters have new homes. A big thank-you to everyone who photographed + shared their successful missions. I don’t deliberately revisit my street art, so I rarely find out what happens to my work, once completed. It has been a joy to see the pics, + know that these characters have gone to loving homes x
