New Piece by My Dog Sighs in Plymouth, England
My Dog Sighs have just worked on a new wall in Plymouth, England during his book signing tour.
“One of the things I’m known for are these glassy, reflective eyes and like there’s a cliche the eyes are the window into the soul. But, you know like our thumbprint, every iris has its own unique pattern and when you look into someone’s eyes, you can see a story reflected back…
So for me, it was about trying to, maybe capture a little bit of the essence of Plymouth. And I know, the Anthony Gormley sculpture on the front is controversial, bit I think if it’s getting people talking, and that’s a really good thing. So I’ve hidden that inside the reflection of the eye” the artist said during an interview with Plymouth Live.
My Dog Sighs has produced an art book based on his recent installation/exhibition. The captivating, beautifully produced photo book reveals all the artwork from INSIDE:We Shelter Here Sometimes as well as a comprehensive and candid documentation of the 18 month journey of the exhibition’s creation. My Dog Sighs has continued the multi layer intriguing theme with the book, creating a game-changing publication that breaks many conventions of the accepted norms of a high end coffee table art book. It is playful and, like the exhibition, encourages discovery of hidden elements that take time to reveal themselves.
My Dog Sighs said “I’m a street artist, working on the street is my passion and at the core of everything I do. When Covid forced us all inside then I, like everyone else, had to change the way I work. This unleashed a surge of creativity which I channelled into my immersive installation and this book. This lovingly produced book is as much inspired by Kit William’s Masquerade as it is by the great street art publications.
