David Walker is a very talented graffiti artist. One would never know that he only started to hone this craft three years ago. He also doesn’t incorporate the use of brushes! David says that,“People are normally quite surprised the work is made from spray paint and I think many are also surprised they actually like the work when its outside on a wall; suddenly they have connected with a scene that they previously had no time for at all.”
I would love for him to do a portrait of Baby Z! It would be Amazing!
Ok, let’s talk about the award before I get carried away with David’s work. I was recently awarded the blogger with style award from some great ladies;DesignChic, A Dose of Pretty, Life Among Mountains, and Live.Like.You. What an honor! This prestigious award involves me telling you 7 things about myself that you might not already know, BUT since you know so much about me already, let’s go for 4 things instead.
- I have only brothers
- I am a first born
- I am really terrible at finding places(directions) Thank God for the GPS!
- I once burned down a tree accidentally when I lived in Italy. The hubby was away and I was a bit over zealous in my Christmas decoration. There was a pine tree in the front yard(perfect for decorating) and i lacking in my electrical knowledge adorned it with a gazillion number of lights without ensuring that I didn’t plug too many lights together. Anyway, that was the day I learned the word bruciato (burnt in Italian) from my Italian neighbors and friends. I was notoriously known on Via de Gasperie(the street where I lived) as the girl who burnt down the tree.
I should be passing the awards on to other bloggers, but you’ve all made that task difficult since you’re all so stylish! I mean it! Therefore, I pass this award on to each of you. You all deserve it! Thank you again, DesignChic, A Dose of Pretty, Life Among Mountains, and Live.Like.You!
Some more of David’s “awesomeness”:
This is not traditional art, but I think that is what appeals to me and his portraits are so soulful! I can envision a big piece of his work on canvas hanging beautifully in the new house. What do you think(your cup of tea or not)? Happy Wednesday everyone! XX
