I love a good eye-catching image, possibly one that tells a story, it is related to a cultural aspect or something we have all read about.
Images just need to evoke a specific feeling. Sometimes, images catch our eye, because there are several elements that are totally different or which may not have anything to do with each other. In fact, this juxtaposition can create striking, thought-provoking images.
In the artwork below, there is an element of happiness and childhood nostalgia radically opposed to an every day aspect we all are familiar with.
The urban artist is iCon, a street art pioneer from South East London whose work has been published all over the world. His goal is to inspire and can be quite controversial. I took this picture as soon as I could, just in case it gets tampered with! What do you think?
Also, did you know that Alice in Wonderland books have even influenced manga artists? I’ve learnt that at the excellent manga exhibition at the British Museum.
Thanks for checking my Picture Wednesday series out today!
