Street art in your own home by Cult Artist Sly.
As night falls in the city passers-by in cars talk to the fairies of the street.
These are not prints as each is individually done and signed to order and consequently vary a little from the illustrated picture. These paintings are mainly sprayed onto plain paper and are ready to hang with crossbars and nails.

Nightfall in the City
by Juan Sly
After office hours in the city,
And workers all gone home,
There falls a magic, peaceful glome*,
Which few do see, more’s the pity.
Now pedestrians when they meet,
Nod and smile at each other,
When before they didn’t bother...
...And also pretty girls, under lamp posts gather:
In crop-tops, short skirts ’n high-heels, they walk,
So passers-by in cars will stop and talk.
There’s soooo much that one can appreciate,
In 15 mins of meet ’n greet.
God bless those fairies of the street!
*gloom that isn't gloomy and a bit glowy**,
** another word I made up.
It is likely that Juan Sly has become the biggest seller of original artworks in the UK. An artist exhibiting in mainly spray stencils and oils. He has exhibited at the Saatchi (a proper gallery with pillars and everything!) alongside the likes of Banksy, Terry O'Neil, Tracy Emin and Vic Reeves and now has a permanent collections at the Cut-Up in Germany, Detroit to a gallery opposite the Tate alongside Damien Hirst and some other artists you might of heard of plus private collections around the globe. His works rock from humour to anti-war, sex to surreal. Particularly fond of the stencil medium as it allows him to quickly respond to events and ideas and gives the work that gritty illegal look. The stencils naturally allow the works to be resprayed and so become affordable and disposable. He likes the fact that people can buy art that they like and not to show off how much they can afford. You can find them in bedsits, legal offices in the Temple or stuck to a fence in Bristol.
