demon kidnaps horse by Richard bartle

 

About the work

In Kadıkoy, where I live, there is lots of street art, often the entire gable-end of a huge apartment block is decorated with an amazing artwork. With this painting I once again used my own mark-making processes to form the body of the demon. The horse, however, was painted using spray paints and techniques I had seen in those graffiti artworks. The wavy red marker pen line is reminiscent of the tags that's are everywhere in Istanbul.
