Identity...










Series by the extremely talented
Jorge Rodriguez Gerada.
He creates large scale charcoal drawings
of anonymous, but special, people that scale the sides of buildings.
"These drawings question the controls imposed on public space,
the role models that represent us and
the type of events that are guarded by the collective memory."
His "identities occupy the canvas of our cities,
populating them with the marvelous residual essence of its people."
His art is overwhelmingly beautiful.

This is very cool! I'd like to see some of the things he did when he was younger that you told me about.
