Interesting graffiti 

Still driving around Spain at the moment after leaving Seville. 

Loving all the different colourful street arts happening in the different cities we pass. Usually I am driving or passing too fast to get a picture of everything I want, still banking a lot of colourful ideas for murals and mosaics in the future though!

Creepy Catholic sculpture collections

Catholic iconography is depressing

Scary Catholic iconography is depressing to outsiders

The last collection I have unofficially titled Scary Mary and the Cherubic Bunch…

What are these for? Are these for people to buy and put in their homes, behind a glass wall, like Lladro? Or adding to personal shrines? 

If anyone had something like this in the house they grew up in I would love to hear from you, to find out what purpose these sculptures exist for! 

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.

  1. I must admit I do love a bit of well-done grafitti. Also those cherubs were possibly the saddest cherubs I’ve ever seen! ;_;
