I sometimes do work on the street.
I like to think of these as more sketchbook pieces; as in, the 'city as sketchbook.' In considering it like this, I don't take the work terrible seriously and instead like to see these ideas congeal, separate and randomly work its way towards something substantial (what 'substantial' is has yet to be determined). At this point in time, I think I've done some pretty cool stuff, playing with transient marks on walls, injecting colors in drab overlooked spaces with paint chips and overall making the city a more interesting, personable place. My favorite pieces of this ongoing series are usually the ones that take something from the city and reinterpret its often overlooked potential to 'imbue' the place with something special. In particular, the Ice Hands work done back in Edmonton, Poster Pocket Plants with Sean Martindale and the paint chips over boarded up windows.
