386. Upfest 2016 (30)

This is one of the most incredible stencils I saw at Upfest this year. It is by p0g0, a French artist now living in Southampton. I watched him putting the final touches to this work, but would have loved to seen the early layering of the stencil.

The skill of the artist has turned the relatively mundane subject matter into something really special. The piece is called ‘Dirty Converse’.

It is no surprise to learn from his short bio in the Upfest programme that P0g0 was a finalist in the Stencil Art Prize 2015, and winner of the 2015 Stencil Art Awards in Bristol.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
