Description

A set of six colourful divers in white, yellow, green, blue, light pink and dark pink dive down the wall of this business, on an otherwise plain and unadorned wall.

MaryMary has been cutting stencils for the better part of a decade. Originally inspired by Banksy and subsequently influenced by other ‘street’ and stencil artists like C215, Roa, JR, David Choe, Logan Hicks and Faith 147; MaryMary’s aim is to add something that adds a value to a location and community. Their pieces are often site specific and planned and designed as such. “I like the idea that someone might stumble upon a piece that I’ve made and be entertained,” they explain. “To find some of my work though, you might have to be in the right place, at the right time, with open eyes.” Some of their pieces have remained in place for years, where others have disappeared within 24-hours. They accept this is part of the process with unsolicited work, adding both a level of excitement and mystery to their work. Originally from North Wales, they stenciled images of miners deep into an old slate quarry to pay tribute to the people who lost their lives in the mines. Being moveable pieces of rock these have disappeared over the years and are likely gracing a few intrepid hiker’s mantlepieces.
