"Every line means something."
|Untitled. Chalk and admittedly some smushed food on wall. 2013|
Every few months I take a photo before erasing the whole thing, and tonight as I was about to wash it away it struck me how much the wall looks like a Basquiat painting. No doubt Zoey's portraits reflect the power struggle of class and gender while Ozzy's kinetic line-work reveals the dichotomy of the inner versus outer experience, yes? Graffiti artists turned Neo-Expressionistic Primitivists, all before the second grade.
|To compare: Basquiat's Philistines. Acrylic and chalk on canvas. 1982|
Happy (very nearly almost) Friday,
