photoblog image David Zinn

David Zinn

 

David Zinn, a self-taught artist from the USA, operates on a very different scale from other street artists.  This little painting is only about six inches high and rather difficult to locate, given the scale of the map of the event. According to the No Limit Website: "His small-scale fanciful creatures, often including a stalk-eyed green monster and a flying pig, are generally improvised on the street using chalk, charcoal and found objects. These etherial drawings generally wash away in the rain, but photographs of them have endured on Street Art Utopia, The Guardian, Central China TV, the Instagram Blog, Colossal, La Republica, Upworthy and many other places." -

I am glad you took the time to find it, Tom...it is a lovely thing, even with its bizarre door bottom edge.
Tom Wilson: There's a link to an interesting video on his web page - an interesting guy.
Punching above its weight I would say then, Tom...smile
Tom Wilson: Certainly in terms of amusement, Frank!
an interesting piece of art and I like your presentation of it, Tom
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush
Quite a great "trompe l'oeil" Tom! Well spotted and captured.
Tom Wilson: If you search for some of his other work you'll find he does fantastic trompe l'oeil!
Fantastic piece of trompe l'oeil Tom.
Tom Wilson: Clever stuff, eh?

Clever fella!
Tom Wilson: Indeed he is - and the fact that he just lets it wash away is quite amazing!
WOW. A different kind of Banksy?
Tom Wilson: Very different! He does a lot of work with school kids apparently - on a video he says people often ask him when he started and he says, the same time as you did (meaning as a child) and then asks, Why did you stop? Interesting fella :-0
They are very cute cartoonish works that are smile-worthy for sure.
Tom Wilson: They are certainly good for a laugh - some of his trompe l'oeil stuff is very good - I liked the pool players on this page: http://www.todaysthoughts.com/amazing-street-art-by-david-zinn/
Very clever painting isn't it.
Tom Wilson: There's even cleverer stuff - take a look at the pool game on this one:

David Zinn is a wonderful street artist to have captured great colourful details in such a small space Tom...
i'm glad that you saved this painting before it washed away in the rain....petersmile
Tom Wilson: He's an amusing artist, no question!
