'Portraits in Transit' by Stinkfish
For 15 years Stinkfish has been painting on the street, but this September BSMT SPACE will proudly open his first solo exhibition of works on paper.
This Colombia-based artist considers himself a Graffitist, his life revolves around graffiti and its principles of independence, anonymity, freedom and illegality. Painting with conviction without permission! The street is important to Stinkfish, he sees the common neighbourhoods and free spaces as an opportunity for people to politicise and observe at the same level.
'Portraits in Transit' is a story of the journey of his works, portraits that come from the street and transcend these spaces to return to the street. They are ordinary people captured by photograph, their image translated into his signature bright colour palette and re-imagined in a new context.
