A love of animals and a desire to preserve them led Polly to learn the skills of taxidermy, and she's been creating eerily beautiful still lives ever since. Instead of placing her creations in their natural habitats, Polly juxtaposes them with unusual and unexpected surroundings, playing with scale and perception to force viewers to see the animals as if for the first time. British born, Polly has been working and living in London since 2005. During this time her work has been featured in The Sunday Times, Harper's Bazaar, Wallpaper and Citizen K.
This week's 'On the Street' is dedicated on more figurative works, that tackle the poetic, metaphorical and quite literal meaning of rising and falling in different nuance. Spaniard Borondo leads off with his newest wall of a man, fallen / hung in an upside down position.
Other notable pieces come from Xabier in Villabona, Jetsonorama in Perth, Seth Globepainter and Kislow in Kiev, Sam3 in Villa Real, Fintan Magee in Sydney, Hyuro in Perth, Banksy -Cheltenham and Bristol and Escif in Valencia.
