‘Ghosts of Graffiti’ (mixed media) by Beau Smith and Gerald Shaffer

“Not all graffiti is art, to be sure, but on the other hand some of the most famous contemporary artists got their start on walls. Wouldn’t you want to see some of their early work? Well, it’s gone, painted over within weeks, days or even maybe hours. Most graffiti, even the exceptional pieces are lost quickly, by human action or erased by weather’s destruction. This is a showcase of new life sized photographs of Gibson’s historical graffiti scene. Each canvas is an explosion of abstract colours from decades old graffiti; images that have come and gone. Their layered remains, exhumed, become the captured focus of our show: The Ghosts of Graffiti.

“‘City-Seen’ is an unheralded look at development. I consider this work to be an important piece that contributes to the ongoing debate on the subject of real estate development, considerations of what was once and is now new, the rapidly changing landscape, affordability and social consequences of housing displacement. The subject is still as relevant today as when I conceived the series in 2006.” Stanley Mishkin
