When Street Art Makes You Smile – Martin Whatson

I love this piece by artist, Martin Whatson.

Martin, born in 1984, grew up in Olso, Norway, and is one of the country’s leading street artists. His recognisable style, combining abstract movements with figurative stencilled compositions, is eye-catching, whimsical and fun.

What lies behind the the facades of gray? What colorful realms are waiting to be revealed if we dare to take a peek?

This work was unveiled in May 2018, in conjunction with Whatson´s exhibition at The Edge Hotel, Tromsø. So see the painting in the making, click here.
