Ok, could not think of a better name than ‘Skull Art’, yeah kinda lame. But what do you call a skull scratched on spray paint that’s on the back of Perspex?  We found this thick piece of Perspex/acrylic and decided make yet another piece for Left & Found Art.

The very first piece of ‘art’ we left in the street was found by a passerby and taken home. Result. They also got in touch with us, telling us how they felt like a child stealing sweets in a store. Exactly how we want you to feel when you decide to overcome indecision and take the piece home. Since then (2011) a few more people have got in touch but I would say about 70% of the pieces are simply gone, like Keyser Söze. Of course it does not help if we don’t write our name on the piece, like the last one at Whitecross Street Party. Fail.

This piece of Skull Art was trickier to create than it looks. First the skull was drawn. Then cut for spray paint stencil. But as it was on the back, we had to spray the skull shape, and then cover in black. Meaning the skull has to be scratched into the back (not traced), Only the faintest shape of the skull shows under the black paint as a guide. Will loop some wire through the holes to assist on hanging or to assist throwing into the River Danube. Yes this is another Left & Found Piece for Budapest.
