Art that has been celebrated the last 10-15 years or so- and certainly protected now by copyright. There are many examples of people appropriating graffiti and finally the artists who have been creating them are protecting their rights. I am very conscious of this as I study the lines, shapes and colors, trying to figure out how to make it work in my pieces- learning from the lines but not copying.
Now the supreme challenge- how to capture that in cloth- with seams and fabric- and with the constraints I have put on myself- no applique- all piecing. It is a marriage of emotion and engineering.
