Working with Charlotte is always exciting, there is always loads of things going on and new projects coming in, but we decided we wanted to do our own project on one day. First, we got loads of her Pop Dolls printed out as stickers so that we could stick them around London, Charlotte had already done this once before in Soho and got a great response. We thought it would be a good idea to go to Soho again and add to what’s already there but we also wanted to go to a new area, Shoreditch.
We first set off to Soho prepared with our packs of stickers which where all colour co-ordinated. We got off at Oxford Circus, to walk to Soho, on the way we saw a little kiosk, opposite Liberty’s, which already had a few stickers on it, where we stuck a long line of pink Pop Dolls along the front. We then went to some of the locations where Charlotte had put her Pop Dolls before, some unfortunately weren’t there anymore, they’d either been peeled off or covered up, but there were a few that were still there. We went to one spot just off Wardour Street which had got a lot of attention on social media, which we added 2 more rows of stickers to, so hopefully they’ll get even more attention now! On another part of Wardour Street we found a door where we did a whole row of purple and blue pop dolls, while sticking the pop dolls up some people would stop to have a look and ask questions about our street art project.
We then made our way to Shoreditch, we found a popular street where there was already some street art around, we put a whole line of green pop dolls on one wall. On Ebor Street next to Shoreditch House, we stuck 72 Pop Dolls! We had put them in colour order before we came out so when it came to sticking the stickers we just stuck them in the order that they were in. While putting all the stickers up some photographers came past which took loads of photos of the Pop Dolls and of Charlotte while she was sticking them. This was the biggest wall that we did! We then headed towards brick lane and stuck a few pop dolls along the way there, by the time we had done that it was 11pm and we decided to call it a day.
We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of response the Pop Dolls get and which ones get the most attention! We wanted to do this project because it’s a great way of getting Charlottes art on to the streets and to get it seen by new people. Next time you’re in Shoreditch, Soho or on Brick Lane why don’t you see if you can find them, if you do take a picture hashtag #charlotteposner, so that we can see the response!
