So, a group of friends in Edmonton decided to get together and make art that would amp up the aesthetics of these function-over-form structures. I was honored to be included in this group.
The theme was Father's Day (#poppaart), and this is what I came up with:
|acrylic on wood, 27"x48", Dad c.1975|
The adventure of putting up unsolicited art was quite fun, and the look on my Dad's face when he saw his portrait hanging on a tree on Father's Day, was priceless.Hopefully, nobody walks off with the picture... But it is the public domain, so I guess 'art getting jacked' is all part of the process.
If someone does appropriate this portrait, I just hope they're nice to my Papa.
