This work on canvas, also featuring as a mural in the Croydon Arts Quarter, plays on the idea of the toy. While we all understand ‘toys’ to refer to child’s playthings the term in the world of street art has come to mean a novice graffiti writer, or a writer that is unskilled or unpopular. The artist’s expertise in spray paint give new life to these toys. Dotmaster’s work immortalises once loved, now discarded, childhood trinkets, exploring themes and disposability and growing up.
