During the last couple of days, when I stayed at home because of some flu stuff, I was browsing through my digital photo-archive and came up with a neat idea for a new urban art related photo-series, focusing not on the artists, but on their tools and equipment!
I ended up with a great collection of photos showing spray cans, brushes, paint buckets, masking tape, markers, gloves, even more cans, fire-extinguishers, and everything else a street or graffiti artist probably needs… The name of this new photography project: Urban Tools – Creating like a Pro.
Ironically, this series is the exact opposite of my former series: Instead of documenting a creative head while dynamically working, it’s now all about the artists static equipment – you could say I created urban art still lifes. To carry this contrariness to extremes I made the decision to keep each photograph in black and white, to concentrate on its basic elements.
I hope you like it anyway! Some of the photos will be available as fine art prints via Society6 soon – I’ll keep you posted. And let me know what you think! My portfolio is already updated, by the way…
