Graffiti, grillwork and linoprinting – inspired by Balmain, New South Wales, Australia. These three images are connected and are in harmony through their fascinating twists and turns. Their Designs link them together.
Art Forms: Graffiti, Grillwork, Linoprints
The first image taken was the grillwork close up. Second was the graffiti on a building wall, which I found similiar in design to the grillwork. Third was my linoprint in blue.
While visiting in Sydney, I took a series of photographs of homes, gardens, buildings, doorways. Seeing the old heritage buildings and the ornate designs was quite fascinating from an artistic viewpoint.
Looking at the buildings and structures, I was amazed that now liked them so much. In the past, I’ve not cared much for buildings.
But, this time, I was really seeing the abstract shapes and patterns within these buildings and fences, doorways and walls. I liked it!
Art, comes in many forms. Not just in the one I’ve been used to, nor the one that fits like a nice old slipper.
And Yes, graffiti. I really enjoy graffiti. Who knew!
