This series is based on the street postings of New York City. Referring to "wheat pastings and postings", the artist created from the decaying advertisements lining New York City streets. The dialogue created by both residual deterioration and blanketed layers, left behind by years of placing and tearing down wheat paste posters and stapled flyers against construction dividers, results in its own language, unique to the constant turnaround in New York City. He became fascinated with what he refers to as “the city’s modern day cave paintings” in 2016 and has dedicated his creative practice to bringing these compositions to life since then. In the frenetic environment created by growth in technology and saturation of marketing, many ignore their surroundings while walking through the city streets. John Grande exhibits the messages of the metropolis, hidden in plain sight, through the lens of his paintbrush. He gives a platform to these overlooked narratives by exposing the compositional quality of worn urban advertisements layering the city’s free market frenzy. By capturing transient moments, Grande’s artworks explore the language advertisements have with one another and give context to their time.

John Grande’s art comes from culture, the history of art and the culture of our times. His work with its vibrant colors, serrated juxtapositions, double and triple dimensions and energetic ideas is set apart by the unexpected — yet it speaks to everybody: “It’s about the people, about us, the human race". Each line of work, each piece is unique, constructing and deconstructing popular and contemporary culture derived from today’s multi-media world, as well as transforming and uniquely weaving high-end symbols and icons immersed in today’s lifestyle using industrial mediums in the process.
