I was really taken by this fantastic work by Belgian artist Din Din who describes herself as a ‘one woman artistic movement’.
On Saturday afternoon, when I watched her working, she was putting down the stencil at the bottom of the piece. I noticed that she used plastic stencils and asked her if she used them because they were stronger (seemed sensible to me), but she answered that with the plastic stencils you can work in the rain…so she came well prepared for a festival in Britain then!
On her website it looks very much like she did two other stencils in the area during her visit to Bristol, so I will have to hunt these down.
There is something about the piece that reminds me a little of Tian’s works that he pasted up around Stokes Croft during his ‘tour’ earlier in the year – photographic works with monochrome tones.
A wonderful piece to see and to get a glimpse of the artist at work.
