In truth I went out this morning hoping to find some work by a Mexican artist, Pablo Delgado, that I had been reading about recently. Given the miniature size and collectability of these little people though, (understandably perhaps, people seem to be tearing them off the walls to take home) I wasn’t really holding my breath.
I kept my eyes low and before long my efforts were rewarded as I caught my first, then started to uncover tiny figure after tiny figure as I walked the streets around Shoreditch. As I was bending down to shoot these, it meant others noticed and enjoyed the works with me. There seem to be countless versions across the city, I love how leaves have blown under the rhino’s mouth to be eaten, and how the soldier stands guard to a giant banana-skin, watch out don’t slip…!
