The Graffiti Illusion Series

Street Art is a powerful tool. It allows expression in ways that no other form of art can equal. It gives an anonymous voice to the issues of the day. Graffiti can be found from the ancient stones of Hadrian's Wall to the back alley's of modern day Beijing. It exists when no other voice is allowed to speak. It states our fears, it expresses our joys. 

The Graffiti Illusion series is the illusion that graffiti is found where it never actually was. The graffiti in these images does not really exist. It is conceived and created in the artists mind only. Using original photos and art, he plans and choreographs a theme for each piece and then carefully executes it into a single work of art. Any given piece may have dozens of components which were brought together to create the image.

Much of this series was created between 2016 and 2020 and reflects the politics and issues of that time.
