db Waterman Profile picture This street artwork, painted in the contrast of black and white, is an explosion of emotion against a background that tells a thousand stories.

The colourful chaos in the background testifies to the boy's inner turmoil, a cacophony of voices, desires and shattered dreams. Weathered and peeling posters speak of forgotten revolutions, love affairs and the ever-changing cityscape. Amid this visual symphony, the "Runaway Kid" stands like a silhouette, a reminder of the indomitable human spirit against the relentless march of time.

As you approach this creation, the layers of detail come to life, each element representing a piece of the puzzle that is the boy's life. It is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.

I remembered that as a young girl I so much liked to cut images from magazines to paste them into school agendas, scrapbooks and even on my bedroom door. Add to this the fascination I always had for walls filled with old posters, flaking paint, scrappy billboards and weathered paint, it opened an unexpected door for completely new opportunities. Completely unintended I found a new way of working, I felt pleasurably and comfortably at home in. What started out as copying old walls with worn out posters has grown into many series of new visual storytelling. Not simply just eclecticism, but bringing together many seemingly incoherent story lines into one completely new story, my own personal story. Initially it lacked the one thing that is important to me, the transparency that normally only is possible with the use of watercolor. The unforgiving layering of transparent watercolors is a challenge I would not want to miss and after a lot of trial and error I finally succeeded in getting the collages as transparent as a watercolor. Every layer of paper, oil, acrylic, pencil, crayon, ballpoint, watercolor, ink, charcoal and whatever else I use, remains visible in the artwork. You can imagine it made me feel the queen of the ball !
