Stinkfish-Chicago-USA-1

Stinkfish  is now in New York participating of the Juicy Brooklyn Art Festival, but before he left Chicago he painted this beautiful mural based on a picture taken at Swayambhunath in Katmandú, Nepal in August 2013.
The artist, who prefers to call what he does “Graffiti” and always carries a camera with him, highlights the value of photography in his work, both as a registration system and as a tool for building some of the pictures he does in the street. The results are striking portraits of people he meets or that he may find interesting, always accompanied by colourful decorative details, like the one here.
