Urban Life Series
I order to spotlight urban life in many cities I am creating a series called “Urban Life”. The same things go on in many cites and I feel the strong need to bring this to life on canvas. I believe this will bridge the gap between the cities and counties so we can realize that what we are doing in Baltimore, MD goes on everywhere.
I want to spotlight the fun, happy, and everyday life of someone in the city. I plan on going to other cities up and down the east coast to portray a cohesive reality series of paintings. Spotlights such as hanging clothes outside, standing on the bus stop, going to the laundry mat, urban dance festivals, and dirt bike riding are some of the point I am touching on.
All artwork is original and many are concepts are suggested by my Facebook and Twitter friends. In hopes that I receive the grant, I intend on visiting Atlanta, Virginia, Philadelphia, Rhoda Island, and other east coast cities to take photos and create a 20 piece collection.
I will use this grant to help pay for travel, a better camera, canvas, paint, ink, and brushes.
I would like to thank you for this opportunity.
