Retro Corner: Then and Now from Ingenue AD to Fin Dac

Welcome to my blog, art of corrine bayraktaroglu, and a place where I love to explore arts, crafts and the world around me. Hope you enjoy your visit.

Ingenue Magazine July 1967

There are some things from the 60's I am very happy to leave behind, but I loved the cornsilk ad's back then, and still do. They have a stylistic appeal that continues today with stencil graffiti artists.

The one's I've done are pretty simple

one layer spray on yarnbombing        three layer bird on a cd

but there are some artists whose stencils are so layered and complicated it makes my mind boggle.One of my favourite stencil artists is  Fin Dac.

 You can also find him on finbarr dac fb pageFlickr or Twitter. I like his quote "I create my art to keep myself happy...if others like it then that's a great by-product".
Pretty much sums it up for me.
