There is a lot of very serious art around on the streets these days. Not that I don’t like this style of work, in fact I like a lot of it very much. However, it’s nice to have your day brightened by a fun piece like this by Bday boy.
As a huge Mario Kart fan in my youth this piece immediately made me smile both inwardly and out. In fact I’m such a fan of Mario Kart that I will challenge anyone to race and be confident I will win comfortably!! Maybe that’s my next street art event right there, paint and Mario Kart challenge!
The piece itself is of a Koopa turtle celebrating a race win. I love how he has been painted perfectly in 12 bit style, it’s really creative and skilled work to do this. Simply fun fun fun. More of this please.
