Urban Facade #4

Each mixed media photographic work in South African fine art photographer Sandy McLea’s Urban Façade series is composed of photographs of graffiti in urban settings. McLea uses paper tole technique to layer repeated selections of an image and create a three-dimensional effect. By physically lifting graffiti off a façade, the artist invokes controversial questions about the nature of graffiti and whether it is vandalism or art and whether it belongs on the very structures on which it was painted by assigning it to a separate plane.
