This romantic artwork heralds from Johnman’s time in Britain, using a collage of one hundred and forty-four of the country’s iconic orange striped train tickets as a canvas.
“I was inspired to adorn train tickets with spray paint watching documentaries about graffiti’s origins with the painting of New York subway trains. The two are actually a very incompatible media but something I stubbornly persevered with. Using transparent paints I love the two dimensional aspect of each artwork: One can stand back and admire the imagery or get up close and still see the journey details on each ticket and wonder about the untold story each one represents.”
This large artwork is presented in a black frame and is ready to hang as pictured.
