Proud to present an Interview with Cheltenham based bunny loving Street Artist and illustrator Bunny Boiler.
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Bunny Boiler and I’m an artist, I have a background in tattooing and graffiti over the last twenty years, I have a serious passion for surreal and cartoon art and draw most days mainly using pens, aerosols and acrylics with lots of them containing cute bunnies .
How do you feel about Street Art in your current city/ environment?
I live in Cheltenham and the graffiti scene now consists of two tunnels and a small skate park so it is rubbish, there are several good graffiti writers but our neighbouring town is considered more open to graffiti and most of them will prefer to paint there .
There is lots of Street Art in Cheltenham how does yours stand out from the rest?
I think my style makes my artwork standout once decried as ….as mad as a hatter , as lost as Alice and as alluring as the Cheshire cats smile, describes my strange mix of dark and cute and I always try to keep my work fresh and not too repetitive so it is always interesting or fun to look at. I just love creating it and sharing it .
What are the good and bad things about painting in Cheltenham?
Cheltenham considers itself a posh town so ‘street art ‘ by that I mean illegal art even stickers are usually removed quite quickly, the council need to allow graffiti on at least several more walls to give a better amount of space to allow people to show their art to the public.
Who is your favourite Street Artist?
my favourite graffiti artist is a guy called Daim from Hamberg his 3d lettering is so realistic is mind bending, as for favourite other artist there’s only one….. a true master Mr Salvador Dali, his work covers so many different styles but most known for his surreal images of melting objects inspired me ever since first seeing them .
How important do you think it is to be creative?
I believe it is so important to encourage creativity and expression of ideas in art, music or any other medium as it encourages the imagination to explore, is part of why I volunteer with local community art groups helping run art classes as I love sharing my skill and ideas to help others express there’s.
