Punk Kitty Graffiti

This street art by Jesse Olwen is on a wall, but it's not graffiti. Oh, it looks like graffiti, but it is attached to a wall and can be removed and displayed in a gallery without defacing the property. But while it's outside, it attaches a pleasant picture to a ruin.

I make paintings on wood (which I cut into a graffiti-ish shape. In this piece the words read "PUNK NOT DEAD"), then I paint imagery of things which I consider to be a nice to contrast to the the location I place it in. This piece shows a couple of kittens in front of roses hanging over a demolished pit a few blocks from my apartment here in Incheon South Korea. These are two 4'x4' pieces together, acrylic on plywood.
