Explore My Dog Sighs' work, and particular themes repeat themselves: love and loss; the plight of the unheard; a cry for help; the environment. The list is emotive for a reason… to remind a blinkered society what really matters.
My Dog Sighs would leave a painting each Friday for a stranger to find, photographing it as he left and sharing it online. Now an event spanning six continents, its success lies in the simplest of ideas: the pleasure of creating and sharing art.
London, 2002. A rat stencilled onto a metal door, lost amongst the city streets. An image insignificant to many, but not My Dog Sighs. This rat changed everything: art could exist anywhere, hidden away in unexpected places or made from unlikely materials.
Street art was the way forward. In Southsea on the south coast of England, My Dog Sighs witnessed the emergence of graffiti during the 1980s. As the kid constantly sketching away in class, its immediacy spoke to him. It held a mirror to society, capturing distinct moments in time – politically, socially and more. So when the time came, street art was the perfect medium for My Dog Sighs to tell his own story.
Creativity, originality and ambition. These values were instilled into us as brothers growing up in Liverpool. The city's street art reflects its people; rebellious and unique. When we met My Dog Sighs, that same passion was clear. We were a perfect fit.
Visit My Dog Sighs' studio, and it’s immediately obvious this man lives and breathes art. Every surface is a canvas, every space a window of endless opportunity. From bottles to skateboards, all bear the touch of his artistic fingerprint. Relentlessly creative and prolific, it’s unsurprising that My Dog Sighs looked to break the mould when it came to releasing his work.
There’s an irony at the heart of My Dog Sighs’ work. Take the tin cans he decorates, for example. Having been discarded by their previous owner, his paintbrush offers them new purpose. Scrap becomes sculpture; one man’s trash becomes another’s treasure. Those who discover My Dog Sighs' work won’t forget it.
