Duratrans on lightbox / Pigment prints on cotton paper, A0/A1
Signs No. 1 & 2 (2016) are digital graphic designs made with symbols found in graffiti. Inspired by images in Poet Fool (2016), a collection of imprints in public spaces, the work functions as a survey of signifiers revealing our preoccupations in contemporary life, from politics and money to sex and technology. These images represent ongoing transnational conversations depicted in raw graffiti, fragments of stories and ideas hinting at an array of human experiences from different points of view. It can be exhibited as translucent prints on light boxes appropriating the aesthetics of street advertising, or as framed pigment prints on rag borrowing qualities from posters.
Part of a series of works exploring graffiti, signs, public spaces and digital archive.
