10-year-old’s Banksy-inspired street art
After watching Banksy’s Exit Through the Gift Shop, little Gracie Zenz was convinced she had found her future career as a street artist extraordinaire, but her dad, children’s author Aaron Zenz, had a few reservations about his darling daughter wandering the streets, paint in hand.
Not wanting to squelch her creativity, though, he came up with a plan:
I bought a big sack of rocks, washed them, and painted the base colors. Then Isaac, Gracie, Lily, and I each claimed a color and decorated them with as many faces and expressions as we could thing of. 48 rocks in all. [...]
Hopefully we were able to spread a little happiness to anyone who stumbled across these little guys.
Police record averted, joy spread. Now that’s a good day’s work. Excellent job, Isaac, Gracie and Lily!
The art of happiness.Posted by Kate Rinsema
