It’s been four years since Colombian Street Artist Stinkfish last visited London, and a few weeks ago London was lucky to receive a whistle stop visit from the artist who left a pair of stunning paintings and a ton of paste-up works in his wake, presenting an impressive collection of beautiful portraits that are just brimming with bright vibrant colours and poignant soulful portraits.
The people in Stinkfish’s portraits come from all over the world and become the manifestation of Stinkfish’s own travels, depicting images of ordinary people going about their daily lives. Featuring people he rarely knows and never staged, the people in the photographs Stinkfish captures become the basis for his distinct stencil-based and freehand designs set alongside vibrant abstract cosmic fueled patterns that exude a sense of positive energy in his trademark bright colour palette that makes his works very much his own, whilst retaining his roots to South American artistic traditions.
These works were placed up ahead of his participation in the group show ‘Statement of Intent’ at the BSMT Space Gallery at 529 Kingsland Road, Dalston, co-curated with street artist Snik, and running until 31st October.
