Last year at Upfest there were many black and white/greyscale pieces, of which this was probably one of the best that used contrast to its best advantage. The strong blacks and whites on the grey background really lift the design out from the surface, and I think this is a really accomplished piece.
This was one of two pieces by the Drojan at the festival, and I hope I have left enough time to feature his other one in a post before Upfest 2018 catches up with me.
I know little about the artist (there was no entry for him in the programme), but this short video made by a visitor to Upfest 2017 shows him paining this piece, in the video he reveals he is from Venezuela, emphasising the incredible international reach of this festival. Already getting very excited for July.
