Graffiti He'Art' 0078


Title: Untitled
Size: ACEO (2-1/2 x 3-1/2")

Notes: Made with real graffiti

I find I like working with graffiti - mostly because each piece is unique.

Because it is graffiti that has been kicked off the wall in chunks - still attached to drywall, it comes with stains, holes, nicks, dings and raggedy edges.

Imperfections ... maybe.
Inspiration ... definitely!
