Urban Canvas by Charlann Meluso
Solo Exhibition by Charlann Meluso
Art on the street is as prevalent now as it has ever been and has existed since ancient times. Displays of graffiti, hand-drawn messages, flyers and bills fastened to the walls, sides of buildings, freeway overpasses and other surfaces adorn city streets all over the world. City workers and private graffiti removing technicians have the ever-daunting task of eliminating what many view as vandalistic eyesores. However, images eventually re-appear and in many cases are downright “artistic” in a grungy, creative, thought-provoking way.
My fascination with street art, in general, has me searching for interesting photographic images of such subject matter. My never-ending quest for unique and unusual images fuels my desire to capture the results of the “urban canvas”, one of which is constantly appearing, disappearing and re-appearing through exposure to the elements and the effects of community efforts to remove it.
