Living at a lower level of existence, Pahnl's miniature people, dogs, cats, birds and buffers can often be found along the ground, outside in the street. Taking influence from comics and street signage, whilst adding his own subversive twist, Oxford-based Pahnl uses stencils, stickers, film and photography to bring his own small world to life.
can read a great little interview with me here
does 'Pahnl' mean?
I took the word 'panel' as in 'comic panel' and misspelt it to
change it from a noun to a name. You could say I see surfaces
and spots in the street as panels to drop my characters into but
I might be romanticizing the process a little too much.
material do you use for your stencils?
paint little people, dogs, cats, etc?
I like creating worlds and it's easier to play with a space if
it's on a miniature scale. Dogs, cats and birds are also just
very fun to paint.
you paint something for me?
Maybe. Get in touch and let's have a chat. I always enjoy talking
ideas over and, of course, sending an email doesn't cost a thing.
you want to trade stickers?
was a very short FAQ.
