Summertime Graffiti

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Inspired by Nina Lise’s quilt that she
sent to the Festival of Quilts in
Birmingham, UK, I was thinking
of summer in the city.

One of the things I enjoy seeing
always is graffiti.  I know it annoys
some and I certainly don’t condone
hate messages, but I am talking about
pure drawing on walls that
to me brighten’s the city landscape.

If often think of graffiti as urban speak,
a way for those who don’t always have
a voice, maybe never have a voice, to
speak and say hey we are here.
Drawing as a way of saying we are alive.


In the spirit of both Nina Lise’s quilt and
graffiti and my continued exploration of
this weaving that I am making, I used the
back of a Kashi frozen pizza box and some
recycled magazine pages that had been glued
together to create my version of summertime
graffiti.

Rural speak recycle.

    Oh, wow! You have really captured hot summer graffiti. I love it.

  2. Your woven pieces really speak to me. I too appreciate "good" grafitti and love how different artists have been allowed to decorate some builings and walls. It's strange; I was actually taking pictures of one of those buildings yesterday.
