Street Artist by jenniferstuber Street Artist by jenniferstuber
Update June 3, 2009: Thank you so much to everyone that views, comments, and/or faves this photo. It has received so much more attention than I was expecting. Thank you so much for your support.



In Toronto I was sitting at a table at a McDonalds in a big shopping mall. I turned to look out the window and saw a man kneeling on the sidewalk, and this is what it said next to him:

    Hi Folks!
    My name is Sing. I am an artist from China. I love drawing and I can’t do anything better than this.
    Toronto is a beautiful place from what I have seen, I’m hoping to build my home here.
    I appreciate your generous support and to encourage me to do the best.
    Thank you very much and have a good day. God bless you all!

I have never seen so much talent in my life. I was in awe watching him do this.

Huh... I adore this picture!
Just look into his eyes how he watches his portrait.... i can see a lot of love. As in the submission's despription given he sais that he can't do anything better than drawing... and here you can really feel it.
he invests much time with drawing something on the street and though he wants to earn money with that he puts a lot into it.
I adore that you can see his "tools of trade" in the background and that you can recognize that he even uses his fingers to make the perfect portrait.
i'm so in love with your piece of art here <3 ahw

xoxo, bine

First of all, I want to say this photo is beautiful.
I feel like I'm looking down on a man who has so much dreams and such an amazing talent.
This photo also shows how detailed and dedicated this man is with his art. Being the only thing this man can do. He has a gift.
The art looks amazing in this photo, but I wonder what it would be like to see it up close?
Like I just want to dive in this photo, just to see it.
You have a very good eye and this photo is just amazing, with how much detail there is.


Beautiful
Stunning
And made me smile.

Sings' work here is that of the Academic discipline of which many of the 'Old Masters' had adhered to when creating their own works. From the Renaissance to works by William Bouguereau each generation of master and student had sought to improve on the work of the previous generation. When the Impressionist movement started the standards of which the 'Academic' artists had began to mitigate. Standards had become less and less until there were none at all. Of course, the early works of the Impressionists' were of genuine merit. The work here is a resurgence of that very talent, discipline, skill and aesthetic beauty that is Academic art.
