A Blast from the Past
Today's theme, class, will be strong color and geometric shape as utilized by a French street artist, an unknown painter of walls, a Swedish artist and yours truly.
While walking on Allen Street, between Delancey and Broome,
I spied this wonderful painting on the side of a building.
Diagonals have always attracted me.
It was done in 1958.
The size is 76" x 38".
In the 1970s I was looking at Baertling for inspiration for my paintings. In 1978, Richard and I organized a show in Philadelphia called: The Courthouse Show -- Elemental Painting. It featured 15 abstract painters and was installed at the Federal Courthouse building in Center City.
Me and my paintings at The Courthouse Show, 1978.
Today I am still using diagonals in the design of my hats.
These works were spray painted with an air brush.
