Mister Finch

Fist of all, apologies for being so quiet lately, November and December were crazy busy, but 2014 is the year, I will definitely write more about all these amazing artists around the world who do awesome stuff. Like Mister Finch.
He lives in Leeds, Yorkshire and he loves animals. So he creates this wonderful creatures in recycled fabrics that he finds and keeps to tell new stories.

In his manifesto he says:” Flowers,insects and birds really fascinate me with their amazing life cycles and extraordinary nests and behaviour.British folklore is also so beautifully rich in fabulous stories and warnings and never ceases to be at the heart of what I make.
Shape shifting witches,moon gazing hares and a smartly dressed devil ready to invite you to stray from the path.
Humanising animals with shoes and boots is something Ive always done and I imagine them to come alive at night. Get dressed and live our their secret night life maybe helping an elderly shoemaker or the tired housewife.

Most of my pieces use recycled materials, not only as an ethical statement, but I believe they add more authenticity and charm. A story sewn in,woven in.
Velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become birds and beasts, looking for new owners and adventures to have.”

Which is your favourite?
He has a shop on Etsy, which will re-open very soon.
