This is graffiti-charged 21st century New York City. Words and word play have found their way into the cityscapes, the influence of writing poetry. These drawings are from a series called “Stark City,” which is still in progress. They portray a particular time and place, with a continuing interest in universal themes such as mortality and youthful exuberance. The cityscapes are not realistically correct, but similar enough to recognize specific architectural buildings and neighborhoods.
