Minimalist Street Art Adds Value To My City and Life
I love minimalist street art I see. It takes great skill to create something amazing with as little as possible. To add to the difficulty the work has to get noticed by the public.
I live in Jersey City New Jersey and there is an artist that has been accomplishing this right under my nose.
His name is Norman Kirby and I have been admiring his street art for a few years now. That is no small feat as Jersey City has a robust and ever-growing art community.
He has been prolific in producing minimalist street art on chain link fences in Jersey City
I believe street art done well adds value to the community and Jersey City is full of great works from top to bottom. For me, Norman Kirby’s work is special because it is the definition of minimalist street art. So simple.
Just strips of fabric woven in between the links in chain-link fences.
As a living simple minimalist, I walk and use trains and buses a lot. I walk past Norman Kirby’s street art all of the time. I enjoy it and it usually makes me chuckle.
It adds a bright spot in my day as I enjoy the outdoors.
Here is a local article that allowed me to place a name to the artist that adds Value to Jersey City New Jersey with his minimalist street art.
I look forward to being pleasantly surprised by the new Kirby works I happen upon.
Norman Kirby Minimalist Street Art
I honestly love street art and graffiti. One of my favorite things to do when I go into the city is find amazing art that has been sculpted or spray painted on a wall. I am not talking about gang tags or something like that. But, when an artists can take words and add life to them. Can create a 3D feature to a word and make it shine on the wall. The bright colors always grab my attention.
Thanks for your comment Kirtis. I like to use local street art photos in my blog post when I can. This is one of my favorite. David Bowie on a building
Hello Tony thanks for this post. Talk about a work of art! Norman is very skillful in what he does. I particularly like the paintings on walls. It is so detailed and organized. It actually adds beauty to the area.
I smiled when you said you it makes you chuckle on your way to work. Going to work does not make everyone smile. But imagine walking by a scenery that brings a smile to peoples’ faces. That could make a difference to their attitudes for the entire day. When returning home, though tired, those same scenery could do the same thing all over again. That’s a great booster for the spirit of a community. Talk about contributing to the life of the people in your area.
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your comment EJ. Yeah. The artwork just pops up in places that there was bare the day before. I think it is great and makes me chuckle. LOL
