URBAN SQUARES ART - A - Language of urban squares


  Language of urban squares - series of large format digital art prints. There is one very important element to these photographs. They are taken in actual spaces but at the same time they are not entirely realistic. 12 different photos taken from the same spot in a 360˚ circle and stiched together provide a surreal impression (visible when printed) with multiple vanishing points and a curved perspective. When stiched they are converted to black and white image to help visually separate it from the message, which is in colour and it was added digitaly. For the same reason all other visual communication is eliminated [blurred] from the image.

Chromira archival art prints, 92" x 18 1/2" [233 x 47cm] each 1/1 + one author's print, toronto, 2006 - 2008
[price is negotiable].
You can also order them in smaller format, 36" x 9" [91x23cm], framed, for $500.
