“Although we are bombarded by words every day, it’s somehow more appealing when they are placed on the street by artists rather than advertisers.”
Lou Chamberlin does it again. The prolific stencil art writer and photographer brings our attention to the written word in street art around the world in this beautiful new volume published by Hardie Grant Travel.
Urban Scrawl: The Written Word in Street Art
From my last show Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, with Akemi Ito, at Off the Kerb Gallery.
This sculptural work talks about move and growth of cities. The materials, Perspex and concrete, are found to be urban characteristics of our bitumen surroundings.
I often travel to coastal towns on freeways, where the Australian speed limit allows us to observe the environment, including concrete, steel, wood, and the translucent qualities of Perspex used, for example, for sound barriers. This work was inspired both by childhood memories of 1970s architecture and the Australian travelling landscape.
