Stik is by now one of the best known and most influential street artists in GB.
During the last couple of days, he kept himself busy with reinterpreting old master paintings in Dulwich, South London. Astonishingly, they are instantly recognizable:
“The Guardian Angel” by Marcantonio Francheschini.
“The Linley Sisters” by Thomas Gainsborough.
More classic painting adaptions will be coming soon, e.g. “Three Boys” by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.
Moreover, as part of the Dulwich Festival starting tomorrow, there will be the special “Stik Street Art Walk” on May 19th at 2.30pm, led by Stik and Ingrid Beazley at Push Studios, Blackwater Court, Blackwater Street and ending at Dulwich Picture Gallery. While Stik will present and comment, Beazley will be introducing the Dulwich Picture Gallery paintings on which Stik based his recent works.
