I vividly remember the fist time I visited New York City. It was a remarkable thing to see the iconic skyline of Gotham lit up at night. The feeling of being dwarfed by monumental structures of steel and cement as the city devoured the roadway and nearly blotted out the sky.
While working with Perception Studios, I had the unique opportunity to be a part of the daily happenings of the city. I shopped for groceries, washed clothes, and commuted with the rest of the city's inhabitants.
I've always been fascinated by graffiti, wheat paste, stickers and the like. I enjoyed going for walks and taking pictures of the street art that was inevitably around every corner. It was fun to see recognizable names and art on walls acquiring texture from sun, rain, torn edges, stickers and graffiti. The city was covered in these living collages.
