Octofly Art is the creation of an Italian artist called Sylvia who likes to paint monsters and creatures, and let’s face it, who doesn’t love a cuddly monster? Reading the profile of the artist in the Upfest programme, it would seem that she has only recently started using spray cans for her street pieces when previously she used to use brushes.
There is a definite style here with strong clean lines and solid fills, and it is really interesting to see from the ‘in progress’ picture how she is building up the layers before adding in the outline and details.
I notice that she was painting next to Stelle Confuse (Stelleconfuse) another Italian artist whose Upfest 2018 piece I have already posted on Natural Adventures.
Tea or Spray? – not entirely sure I know what she means, but surely there is only one answer to that question at Upfest.
