MOWING THE SPOT WITH CHARACTERS

50 Characters in a row-

This year in Miami the goal was to find a long enough wall to try a new concept, treating bunched characters like a repeated series of throw ups. I wanted to create something that had a similar feel to what writers of the 70’s & 80’s would paint end to end across subway cars.

The hope was to paint something that grabbed attention for a few seconds while riding by. The longer the wall, the better. With this in mind, I sketched up the idea using the characters eyes as a constant repeating form. Not knowing how long the wall I would end up painting would be, I showed up with only 12 characters and a “YO” throw up sketched…

Getting started with a serieds of “O” shaped ovals, I ended up marking out spaces for a total of 50 characters.

Having only 13 sketched out I had to freestyle the last 37. This was a real pain in the ass due to all of the foot traffic, chaos, and people approaching me while working over the weekend.

I am happy with the finished result. Some parts are lacking balance, some have funny errors, but it’s a good attempt at something I will try again. This wall looks best in person, or while driving 45mph down NE Miami Ave…
