Would you draw a complete stranger? Would you let a complete stranger draw you?
Brought to you by the genius that is Ivan Cash (the same artist behind the Snail Mail My Email), and Airbnb, Strangers Drawing Strangers is just as it’s title suggests.
You get a Polaroid photo taken, you write down your name, your Instagram handle, and your hidden talent down on a card. In an drawer of envelopes are Polaroids of strangers and their cards like the one you’ve filled up. Pick one.
Then, make your way to a very cool table stocked with markers, coloured pencils, and crayons. Pick your weapon and draw your stranger. When you’re done, your polaroid and your work of art are displayed on a wall of portraits.
Look at that. Art by everyone, about everyone. I love art projects that involve communities and bringing people together. I wish we had more projects like these here. I think I might have to start them myself.
