With his satirical, playful and obviously bold expressions of graffiti genius, it is no wonder this UK legend/ hero has made it big time. A documentary, or is it a psuedo-documentary,  about him called “Exit through the Gift Shop” debuted at the Sundance Film Festival recently and while it doesn’t promise to reveal his identity or anything else about him for that matter, it does promise intrigue.

Rachell  Sumpter Slow and Steady 2009 1353 97 Soft human scene: Rachell Sumpter

You may be more familiar with Rachell Sumpter’s work gracing the covers of Dave Eggers novels—particularly the recently acclaimed bestseller bookslip for What Is the What—but her paintings showcase a softer palette, that seem to celebrate kinship, culture and subtle organizational chaos between man, woman and the  mythical/natural beasts.

I’ve been a loyal follower of Artistic Things since I found it online several months ago. This blog has opened my world to styles and genres of art which I might not have ventured into all by my lonesome.

So, one fine day I decided that I wanted to be one of “them” and so, Voila! Here I am!!
