Jimmy C (real name James Cochran) is a Street Artist from Adelaide, Australia, though he feels equally at home in France.
Taking inspiration from Aboriginal dot paintings he has developed a painting style using drips and has shown in galleries as well as leaving many of his pieces in the streets.
All three of the pieces featured here were painted in Berlin in April.
The painting of The Artist’s Tears in Berlin marks the 10th anniversary of the original being painted in Sydney in 2002.
I found the following quote about this piece from the artist on No Way Art’s blog:
The painting became known as my signature painting and marks the merging of my interest in figurative realism in painting with graffiti or street art. I thought Berlin was the appropriate place to mark this occasion by creating a new version of the painting in the drip style. It is good to give this it a second life and to reintroduce it to a whole new audience.
