Street Art

Like them, I admire the artworks of the artist (wearing brown jacket, blue bonnet). I have passed more than a couple of times looking for the right opportunity to click my camera. He seems against people photographing his works, I had simply clicked the camera while it was on top of my son's stroller. We passed by in a breeze and was I glad I did caught them actually - in frame.

This man draws portraits-on-the-spot...if customers do not carry a photo with them, they sit (notice the partly shown white chair) and pose for the artist, in the middle of the plaza!

I remember from a conversation with the artist that he said he comes from Vietnam.

  1. People seem to be very interested. What's the medium? I can't tell.

    I hope they make enough money, at the end of each day.

  3. He probably does not want photographs of himself at all. Looks like a nice outing for the family.

  11. Photographing artists in action is a fun challenge. I've had mixed results. Some artists are totally cool with it and others aren't so happy. I try to win them over by telling them my grandmother was an artist (which she was); that sometimes works.

    Nice pictures!

  13. The one the top attracts a lot of tourists! I like the portrait artists a lot. It's amazing how fast, talented and precise they are to reproduce a portrait. It's fun to watch as well.
