'MISS BLOOM' Phnom Penh Graffiti by Anthea Missy



Miss BLM // forever in love /// on street 51 //#Phnompenh #cambodia #streetart #streetart #graffiti

Inspiration: 
I painted miss bloom today on a large grey wall. Illegal work, simple means. I still made time to make a nice white background.
Does it make sense to paint a smiley character in the middle of a dusty grey environment ?
I think it is a quick work that is contextually relevant because the happiness stands out in the middle of darkness.
If legal I could have made it sophisticated and worked on a richer composition.
But once you get 30m to execute something like that, you go to the A guy said to me : you draw like children. At some point I take it as a compliment.

I do not pretend that piece is the artwork of the century . However it is clear that this long wall of grey attitude was boring before she popped on it like a flower growing and coming from apparently nowhere.
