Have you ever had one of those moments where you see something that completely stops you in your tracks? As I was passing by White Lady Art on the way to my bus stop after work one day, what should I see in the window but this amaze-balls piece of urban art. It was a perfect combination of some of my favourite things – skulls, drippy spray paint, graffiti and my new affection for pink. I kinda had to have it.
I went straight into the shop. There were loads more pieces of spray can art in the shop, all handmade by the intrinsically talented Irish designer, Eric Davys. His creative process is so beautiful and detailed. It reminded me so much of before I was into interior design and was heavily interested in becoming involved in either comic book artistry or special effects makeup. I’ve contemplated blogging my work from my previous life, but as it doesn’t really fit into design, I kinda don’t think it would be appropriate. But that’s a story for another day! We’ll see.
For the moment, cansy, that’s what I like to call him, sits on our desk and beautifully matches and juxtaposes against my My Fair Lady print which hangs over our desk. I should have taken a photo of the two together, but I’m a bad blogger and didn’t think of it at the time. Shame on me.
I did miss my bus that day when I spotted cansy, but it was so worth it.
