Join the Big Picture

A blog that aims to spark thoughts and inspire by seeking out and sharing works of art

Historically, artists have always worked big, and nowadays those boundaries are being pushed to the limits.

Large-scale art, whether in the form of photos from the Hubble space telescope, sharks floating in tanks of formaldehyde, rooms full of dots, concrete sculptures cast from Victorian buildings or hand knitted blankets wrapped around trees, large-scale art is all around us. Join the Big Picture aims to spark thoughts and inspire by seeking out and sharing these works.

All content by Karla Thompson, an ex-pat Aussie living in East London. When not working on Join the Big Picture she is part of the backbone to the Leonhard Pfeifer brand.

SAKI B

Saki B (aka Saki and Bitches) is a pretty busy lady around this part of town and her work is everywhere at the moment. Not normally an artist I would point out to my 6 year old –I think she has time to discover erotica and soft porn a little bit later on in her life – her wooden dolls have popped up on our school corner.

Luckily, Saki B has made them more child friendly on our street (thanks), taken the bitches out of her name and kept them with just a little bit of cheeky. Lucky for us parents as they are a huge hit with the kids and my daughter cannot walk past them without twisting each section around to put them in order. This city kid is slightly obsessive about her street art!
