Collage of the Month: Graffiti World

Loving Graffiti

I always have my digital camera with me to catch that moment, that scene or artwork.  I have gathered a collection of graffiti art in downtown NYC–LES, Soho, Bowery, Nolita and Dumbo.   These images influence, energize and motivate me to create.  The artists’ talent and visualization fascinate me and I often think about what inspired and influenced them to produce such works of art.  Sometimes, it seems as if their minds are an expression of speaking up, not verbally, but in street art.  The art is speaking for them.  They appear to be fearless, confident and daring to attempt new things.  Unafraid to be judged.  My special, favorite neighborhoods are LES, East Village and Nolita, famous for the exceptional talent of famous artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lee Quinones or Michael Martin (“Iz the Wiz”).  It’s dope!  I’ve been pondering over my photo collection and made this collage of my “urban street art” experience so far.  This isn’t the end…it’s just the beginning.
