I met Rozalita for the first time last week, painting down at the tunnel, and what a pleasure it was too. Of course I knew exactly who she was, which must have felt a bit creepy really, especially as I was able to talk to her about her work with some knowledge and authority. I sincerely hope she doesn’t think me a bit weird or peculiar, because I am just a regular guy who appreciates street art. Anyhow, Rozalita is absolutely smashing it out of the park at the moment, with at least four other recent pieces. I understand that she is upping her game with a view to gaining more paid work from her artistic talents, and with that she has my full support.
This clown piece is in Devon Road, which had had a few new pieces added recently, and definitely brightens the place up beautifully. Carnival and circus are themes that run deep in Rozalita’s work and I always have a sense of tragedy in her characters, once you strip away the mask. I don’t know if that is Rozalita’s intention, but that is what I see. Look out for more from Rozalita here soon.
