“My Dog Sighs” from Southsea, UK, is one of the founders of Free Art Friday in Southsea which promotes the idea of leaving art out on the streets once a month in random places for passers-by to take home. After 10 years of giving his art away for free, he has earned an ever increasing number of loyal international fans, while becoming an important player on the contemporary art scene. Predominantly famous for his melancholic portraiture on found materials including abandoned food cans or used spray paint, he quitly interacts with the true public without causing permanent damage to their property. Not concerned with permancence or mass audience, “My Dog Sighs” focuses on the relationship and emotional discourse with the audience, which arises when the finder discovers his melancholic artwork.
