Tribal Street Art Characters

Street Artist Goes Tribal

This illustration has now been painted into street art in Brisbane.

The idea for looking into creating some illustrations as research for some street art murals around mask stemmed from my bear character that was part of the Woden Town Square mural.

Working on a new character for a street art mural. I started my illustration work for this artwork from looking at tribal masks. I really like the bold and simple markings that is common in the masks.

I took inspiration and then started the process of creating my own illustration of a mask. After that, I started on creating a full character using the styling of the mask illustration.

Originally I started using drawing with black and white which let me focus on the markings. Then I started to introduce a slight colour change before going all out with some festive colours.

The final illustration will the base for my next street art mural piece.

HAPPY DECAY = Bjarni Wark

Originally I was trained in fine arts with a focus on illustration, drawing and letterpress (hand set typography). Later on I learnt Photoshop and Illustrator along with other modern digital illustration techniques.

Now with this combination of traditional & digital drawing I love to work with clients needing brand illustration, through to poster and full street art installations with custom mural artwork.
