David

I wanted to make a Foundling for my nephew, David but he's not really into them. I really wanted to come up with something I could create for him so I decided to make him some "street art". He really is into graffiti. I could copy some graffiti but that would be only an illustration of graffiti. Using Banksy's style, using stencils, I decided to make a portrait of him. Marie was instrumental in collecting stickers pealed off of walls and lamp posts around the Lower East Side to complete the look (a dirty but not thankless job). Still, I couldn't resist the impulse to have some rusted elements in this piece as well. It was a stretch to work with spray paint but I was pleased with the outcome (as he was).
