It’s rare to see anything hand painted in new apartments. I feel very grateful to have been invited to add a city view to the wall of this lounge room.
The irony of this little project isn’t lost on me.
Using an art form that I practiced unsanctioned as a youth to paint over illegally place advertising.
I’ve got a bit of beef with advertising poster companies…mixed with a small amount of jealousy. You can vandalise pretty much anything you like if it’s an ad, poster advertisers are very difficult to prosecute. Whereas if I were to paint or place artwork in the same way I’d be in jail.
This time I got my own back on poster advertisers, being given a small commission to remove/paint over the offensive band posters.
