Takin' it to the streets! I like the 80's feel of this piece.
Thanks. I was pleasantly surprised by what the bricks did to my standard wormy abstraction.
electric boogaloo! cool
I like how the colors of the brick lines interact with the graffiti. They kind of act as drips here and there. The choice of primary colors is very intense. I wonder how this would look really big?
Thanks. I'm afraid, even on a big scale, the print wouldn't look as good as the image does on a monitor. Possibly if it were put on Duratrans and set in a big light box it might have impact--but then it might be mistaken for an advertisement for something.
Durtrans? Wheat pasted dude.
When I have assistants to go around unsticking wheat pasted art work from gallery walls I will "go wheat paste."
I hear you.
As you can see, I still get overwrought about presentation issues.
I can definitely relate to the aprehensive feeling of transforming something from it's inceptive (is that even a word?) material. When someone says "make it big" there is always the wince. My sense is though with this piece that something can really happen if it is worked/explored to it's extreme here. Less about appeasement and more about pulling something off of the screen, out of the box and into a new world of the 'real'. It's the challenge that should intrigue. Seeing this work, reading your responses has definitely provoked some interesting thoughts that I am sure have been addressed at legnth in some paper or another. Not absorbed in that world [art theory, crit] enough to know at this point. Regardless this image has a place inbetween 'street' and 'info highway(yes... we can wince now)dom because it is more abstract then most graff work and does not fit into the hip design world that 'samples' this genre as a marketing tool.
Thanks for thinking about it, Ilan.
