Came across this 10yr old graffiti artist called Solveig Barlow who is being compared to the best stencillist in the world ‘Banksy’. Solveig Barlow is being described as ‘the young Picasso of street art’ and is a great Gen C ambassador. Solveig has created more than 20 legal works on walls around Brighton, Sussex, and has earned a legion of fans along the way. Her aim is to create graffiti works that stand out from the crowd. She doesn’t like being compared to ‘Banksy’ who sells his murals to celebs for up to $900k, as she see’s herself as a true graffiti artist, not a stencillist.
“I love to make pieces that are as crazy as I can make them. I have no plans to stop so watch out for me.” It’s great to see great creativity being unleashed in Britain and hopefully inspiring other talented artists to do the same around the world. Watch out for Solveig as an alternate reference point for cool pop culture.
