Target Practice

Painted in the Newtown part of Sydney, Australia by Fintan Magee and Numskull this collaboration is super fresh. Here we have a portrait of a fellow by Fintan practicing on the haphazard "targets" of Numskull, making for a nice juxtaposition of soft versus bold painting. I particularly love how Fintan's arrow yielding fellow is "standing" in a pool of water, which is a theme that he has been constantly going back to since his "Storm Water" show that referenced the recent floods in Brisbane. Seeing these ripples of water in his pieces is a constant reminder of our environment changes... a really nice strategy on his part of using street art for continual awareness.
