Recently in Croydon, Dotmasters took a couple weeks to finish two murals for the The Croydon Mural Project. Given two walls facing opposite of each other in the South London town, the British artist decided to continue his Toy Town series, first started years ago at Nuart in Stavanger, with a Ragdoll and Astroboy. The pieces seem to be a play on a well known graffiti term and are based on actual toys he owns. Photo credit: Ian Cox & the artist.

In his work, Delgado is often focused on reducing his work to its smallest expression, often employing the use of negative space, light, and shadow, while inviting the viewer to interact with the works. In order to emphasize the engagement of the observer, the concept of this […]
