One of my favourite projects to date by far is my new Pop art sticker Around the World Project.
I first came up with the concept after messaging back & fourth with my cousin who lives in Manhattan – Angelo Blanda who is an established Artist. He has created some amazing pop art style images which he has converted into stickers & gets amazing shots of them around the his city.
I like to try new styles all the time and I haven’t really pushed the pop art style so wanted to convert one of my images in this way. I chose a side profile image to edit as I thought it fit the simplistic style – which I could convert to sticker format also.
My original idea was to get some cool photos of my sticker around Manchester in some iconic locations (another Manchester project to promote my great city). I then had the idea to get them in iconic places around the world & reach out to others I connect with from all over on social media to be involved.
“All art should inspire & evoke emotion. Art should be something you can actually feel.” Tim Yanke
Over the past 3 years of creating artwork I have had great support from different people from all corners of the globe via social media. I decided this would be a great way to get others involved & make this an inclusive project.
The Project & End Goal
To involve friends, & people I have met on my artistic journey to get creative using my popart sticker in iconic locations/landmarks or just in an expressive way. To create either small clips or take photos with their phone & then send them back to me.
In 2023 (date tba) I will be having my first Exhibition in which I will create a reel of all the collated clips & images & showcase them in a creative manner.
Each person who has taken part will have their name featured in the Exhibition.
To Take Part
- Drop me a message expressing interest.
- Send me your Address.
- On receipt, get creative (small video clips/photos) involving the sticker.
- Send your finished clip/photo
If you know of anyone who maybe interested in taking part in this please send them my details. I have had a great response to this project & would like to thank everyone who has been involved so far.
