photograph of wheat-pasted wall

NYC. This miniseries was inspired by the wheat-paste street art found throughout New York City. I love how the random advertising visuals and torn type mix with drawings and graffiti. These evolving art pieces exist in a state of flux often at risk of destruction or removal. That urgency is what makes them seem so rightfully at home in the city.

For this miniseries I’ve scaled down to a 12″ x 12″ canvas size to elicit a more intimate visual space. The paint used is acrylic gouache which dries with a velvety, matte finish.
