SpY ha been making street art long before street art became cool. He has been ‘improving’ blank walls, sculptures, and street signs all over the world for over twenty years. His installations are equal parts funny and ironic. According to his website: “His ludic spirit, careful attention to the context of each piece, and a not invasive, constructive attitude, unmistakably characterize his interventions. His work involves the appropriation of urban elements through transformation or replication, commentary on urban reality, and the interference in its communicative codes.” As befitting his name, SpY’s real identity is still unknown.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
