Art Description

Collage: Airbrush, Spray Paint, Resin, Acrylic, Photo on Other, Paper.

In 1790, with the invention of lithography, we began using paper based outdoor advertising posters. These posters not only communicated products and services but also community events and agendas. Technological advances have since made these posters a thing of the past for many communities but take a drive through an underdeveloped country or a low-income neighborhood. The places where not everyone has a cell phone, the internet, high definition fiber optic television. The places where families use the bussing system or their own feet to go to work, the market or school. These are the places where paper based outdoor advertising still has functionality. Whether it be political advertising, the announcement of community events, or product advertisements, paper posters adorn the more heavily trafficked areas. Often times these posters remain in place for years with walls accumulating poster over poster and while the bottom layers rip, decay and rot, the top layers shine for all to see. The walls offer a story, a stand-alone piece of artwork, a time capsule and a tangible look into our past and our present. This is the base or canvas for the "Streetscape" project. The collection and integration of worn and torn street posters from streets all over the world.

Utilizing paper street posters sourced from the art district of South Florida, Wynwood, this piece calls attention to the new beauty found in Wynwood, the previously high crime, dilapidated and ignored section of Miami.
